Tychero is a village in the prefecture of Evros and is located 4 kilometers west of the river. Before 1922, it was a Turkish village named Bintikli and lived only Turkish and Bulgarian small farmers and ranchers. In 1924, the village was called “Tychio”, as it was the village that then visited Eleftherios Venizelos. In 1953, the name changes to “Tychero”, possibly to distinguish it from Pythio.
Most of the residents of Tychero are engaged in agriculture and the cultivation of cotton, sugar beet, wheat, sunflower and pumpkin seeds. In the ’70s Tychero was famous for its melons (variety altabas). Tychero still remains one of the most innovative areas of Greece in rural policy and organization.
