One of the most beautiful villages of the island and at a 35 – kilometer-distance from the town, Mesta is a medieval village, which has been preserved as a monument. Its elaborate architecture dates back to the Byzanine period. The village is built like a castle.
The houses were built one right next to the other, thereby creating a protective wall surrounding the village.
The village is well known for its unique wine “Mestousiko” that is one of the best wines of Chios and “souma”, a drink that is produced by the distillation of figs and grapes. It is a drink for robust drinkers, but pure and with particular flavor.
