During the 18th and 19th centuries when the village of Oia experienced the prosperity of the naval merchandise. Farmers that worked in the valley and vineyards with captains of Oia had their summer homes and canavas in Finikia. The village experienced its dark period during the early 20th century, where more than 150 canavas were deserted because of war and the devastating earthquake of 1956. In mid-1970, the village slowly gained back its prominence as new residents started to return and rebuild the old houses.
