Discover Mesolongi

    Located on the western side of Greece, Mesolongi is a small town constructed on the side of a large sea lake. This sea lake is the main economic source of the town, as many inhabitants live from fishing and fish roe trading. Although this town is surrounded by relaxing beaches and beautiful nature, it has not developed with foreign tourism and receives mostly Greek families. The most important historical event of Mesolongi in Greece was the Exodus, the failed exit of the besieged inhabitants from the town during the Greek Revolution in April 1826 and their slaughtering from the Ottomans. The Garden of Heroes, a beautiful park in the centre of the town, is dedicated to this tragic event.
