Municipal district of the municipality of Aridaia, south-west of Almopia plain, just 15km from the town of Aridaia and 3km from Pozar. It is one of the prettiest villages of Almopia, built at the foot of the mountain Voras - Kaimaktsalan at an altitude of 230m. From the forest of Orma or otherwise Black Forest is said that Alexander purchased wood for the construction of the javelins of the army, the known sarisses which was six (6) feet long. It is one of the most beautiful forests in Greece. It is so dense that the sun's rays never reach the ground. It is believed that the name Orma was born from the reek word “ormao” which means rush, which means that the town was in an area where the waters pour into the river rushing through the mountains. Another version of the origin of the name is that the sea reached the area, where there was a bay, “ormos” in Greek.
