Messaria village

Messaria, Santorini Greece

Situated almost at the center of the island, this inland village is only 4 klm far from Fira, at the Southeast. Messaria has 1.075 permanent residents and it is the heart of the Santorini wine. Surrounded by gardens and vineyards, with its white houses and narrow paths, it is possibly the most beautiful village of the island and worth visiting and staying all year round.

A few houses of neo-classic style create an interesting blend. The most impressive of them is "Argyros Mansion"; the house belonged to the winemaker George Argyros and was built in 1888. His grandson has restored it recently, as it had suffered serious damages during the earthquake of 1956.

It is worthseeing some of the churches in Messaria. The church of "Metamorfosis tou Sotiros" (Transfiguration of Christ) and Aghia Irini were built in the late 17th or early 18th century and are quite interesting, as it is the Cathedral of the village.

Messaria has been developed last years and the visitor can find good accomodation, for any budget; good food, cafes and places of amusements are also available. But be cautious! The sweet wine and the spirit of the village might get you drunk more easily than you can imagine!

As Messaria is at the center of the island you can easily get there from any other place in the island either by public bus and taxi or by private means and reanted car and motorbikes. And... if you are romantic enough don't miss an evening walk from Fira, with the full moon to light your way.
