Mesta village, Chios island, Greece
Thousands of visitors come to the Mesta every year, trying to live even for a moment, a tale of the past …as the settlement is quite medieval, consisted of an internal maze of cobbled narrow streets. A walk in Mesta is a truly unique experience due to this particular unusual architecture. There is a small maze of inner domed alleys (vaults as they are called), around the village square. Consequently, a stroll under the arches of these “roofed” roads is a very special experience as the windows and the rooftops give the impression of meeting each other, creating a very special illusion. A coffee or a meal in the picturesque square of Mesta is a short time traveling medieval trip! You mind wish to visit also the oldest monument of Mesta which is the church of the Old Commander .
