The commune is known for its preserved Aetolian landmarks from Antiquity including the Vani Theater, the Vani Arena, or the Vani Necropolis. Its location made it a strategic city during medieval times until it was captured by the Kingdom of Varkana after the 999 war with Tavros. During the Dinaric era, the commune was overshadowed by neighboring Theodosia, the Dinaric capital. It grew to be an infamous location for brothels and organized crime during that time. U/C
