About Machos

The village has a school, a church, a plateia (square) and some restaurants. The village was partially linked in the 1970s and after the early-1990s is almost fully accessed by paved roads. The village never had a railway station because the train tracks used to run 1 km east. Much of the small community is covered with olive groves and some trees while the east has some mixed farming.

After World War II and the Greek Civil War, most of the population left for larger towns and cities especially Patras. Most of the buildings were not damaged. The population remained steady since the mid to late 20th century. Houses were stone-built until the 1950s and did not surpass modern-style homes until the 1980s.
