Didima is the name for two villages - Mesa and Exo (In and Out)- which are located
next to the villages Mirmigi
and between Pagida
They might be small villages in extent, but in the Medieval times had a great
prosperity. Mesa Didima is the birthplace of Emanuel Roidis. And here it is also
built the Monastery of Agia Matrona. The first nuns were his sisters. By the time
of Turkish domination the Reverent Father Nikiforos the Chian composed there 24
hymns to honor Agia Matrona. Today in the cloister live only 2-3 nuns.
