Its construction began in 1908 from residents of Pefki at a location that had the name “Big piece or Chani”. Its completion was delayed up to 1930, due to the long-lasting wars from 1913 until 1922 and other unfavourable situations. Then a villager, who was retired officer of police force and tradesman in the town of Ierapetra, Charilaos M Manoysakis sponsored its completion which took place in 1933 from the craftsman Stefanos E Karamanolakis from the Krya village.

On the hill called Bigla, 300m on the east of Diaskari, there is the remains of an old town which history goes back to the past Minoan era. Tradition wants the residents of that town to be sailors and they believed to be protected by the sons of Zeus, who were called Dioskourioi. It is also said that the residents of that town had built a temple to honor their protectors, and the town was reported as the town of Dioskourioi. By the transformation of the language through the years, the name of the town took its current form, but the real name of that town is not yet confirmed and remains unknown.

Next to the remains of the town there is a cave facing the sea called ‘Karavospilios’ (Ship-cave). It is said that the surrounding area in front of the cave was used as a shipyard, but despite the extensive archaeological research in the area, nothing confirms the life and the history of the town.
