MESSOCHORIA (Village) KARYSTIA - Greek Travel Pages



  Messochoria, of the Municipality of Styra, took their name from one of the villages. These villages, aside from Messochori itself, are Riza, Souristra, the Charitides and Korfiotes, which is located on the height. Along with the hamlets of Raptei and Tsakei they have a population of around 600.
  The villages are located around 3.5 km from the Aegen Sea and have two exits onto the discharges of the small dry streams, where there are the bays of Almyriki (or Armyrorychi) and Limnionas. During the German occupation, Greek and British members of the resistance escaped to the Middle East from these bays and that at Tsakei. The bay of Limniona with its clean sand has today developed into a summer resort.
  There is a stone fountain with a vaulted arch at Kamara. This village was known as Paleochori in Byzantine times. The hermitages of St. Dimitrios, St. Nicholas and St. George, with a vaulted arch in the sanctuary, are still standing. In the ravine there are the remains of a watermill which was built in 1890. A trip to the ruins of the Monastery of the Evangelism of Tsakei, which today still functions as a monastery due to the presence of one nun, is worth a visit.
