VISIT TO THE MEDIEVAL VILLAGE MESTA
Mesta is the best-preserved “Mastichohori” (mastic village) of Chios.
It is a medieval village, one of the most beautiful castle-villages (“kastrochoria”) of the island. The village, which dominates a small valley, was built in Byzantine times, in pentagonal and closed quadrilatelar shape with labyrinthine inner alleys, while the houses built outside were used as a wall, so they had no outward facing windows . Walking through the narrow alleys of the village of Mesta you will “travel back” to a different era as the atmosphere of this village inhabited by such hospitable people, is engaging.
