30 km from the city of Edessa, and close to the ski center Vora, the traditionally preserved settlement of Agios Athanasios (or Tsegani) is located. The village was founded in the late 16th Century built at the foot of Mount Vora (or Kaimaktsalan) on the heights of Piperitsa at 1,200 m and was once a booming community with livestock farming until the 70s. Then it went descent dramatically, until in 1995, when the whole village "devastated" and was only two families left. The remaining residents packed their bags and went away, or moved to the lower altitudes Neo Agios Athanasius.

With the construction of the ski area in 1995, the situation changed.
