Information about Messaria

Messaria village Santorini: Messaria is a small village situated 4km southeast of Fira, around a vast area of vineyards, at the centre of Santorini. Most of the inhabitants are occupied with wine making and there is a local winery to see and taste a wide range of wines. A stroll around the village reveals magnificent neoclassical buildings and restored mansions. Between them are numerous restaurants and nice hotels. You can visit Argyros mansion, one of the best examples of neoclassical architecture in Santorini, that was built in 1888. You can sit also at the main square for a nice Greek coffee under the trees.
A few but yet beautiful churches with impressive bell towers can also be found in different places of the village.
