Dragotina is an old village mentioned in written sources of 1507. Its primary position was near the church of Taxiarches towards the west but, in 1710 a pirate raid completely destroyed Dragotina and its remaining inhabitants moved to its current position.

Dragotina probably got its name from the world dragatis which means a guard of the vineyards because of the developed cultivation of grapes in the region.
