The name of this village refers to the place that the monks lived alone away from public view. According to historic research, the ancient Melivoia was situated close to Polydendri or Skiti. The ancient Melivoia was the metropolis of Philoctetes and very popular for the deep red (Purpura Meliboiae) dying of drapery. The ancient city is placed in the south firth of the Bourboulithra stream. In the northwest of Skiti there are the ruins of a fort which most probably belonged to the Byzantine city of Kentavroupoli. About 1 kilometer Northwest of Skiti, (on the new road that leads from Larissa to Agiokampos) is the monastery of "mount Kelli", called Sts. Anargiroi. The monastery includes two "chambers" for the monks to leave in. The mural was created between 12th and 16th century.
Currently the Greek Government has planned no efforts for preservation of the Tatoi Palace, neighbouring buildings and the natural area around the Tatoi. Theft, vandalism and illegal water abstraction occur almost every month, as political corruption allows this. In the case of a fire, the buildings, the flora and the fauna would be completely defenseless. Damage caused by time and weather are extensive. The security service has been abolished. In a case of antiroyal Historical revisionism respectively Pseudohistory the Greek state has renamed the area as "Metropolitan area". A political idea to convert the former royal estate to a private winery or a resort with restaurants and barbecue could erase the important history from this important part of the modern Greek history. Nevertheless this proposal was criticised by private persons and organisations, who would like to open Tatoi as a museum for the public. The former royal estate of Polydendri is also completely abandoned, the buildings decay.
