Ale-Pasas gave a big estate to Mrs Vasiliki (1793-1834) which was from the village Voevodas latter taking her name. Mrs Vasiliki, to overcome her shame for marring Ale-pasas, built 5 churches, one being the church dedicated to St. Nicholas. To built the church, Ale-Pasas sent the best builder called Samblo. The consecration of the church took place on the 12 of May 1818. Inside the church is found a wall painting depicting Mrs Vasiliki. It is believed that she allso built an asylum for christians who were treated badly by the Turks.

At Vasiliki you can find another 2 churches, one dedicated to St. George (17th century) and St. Paraskevi (1764). The new church dedicated to St. Nicholas celebrates on the 20th of May, with traditional food and dancing.
