Mesaria is a quite big village at the center of the island, once a rich place as you can tell from the beautiful mansions, since in the 19th century it used to be the industry center of Santorini.
It remains a lively place until today with shops, restaurants, hotels and everything is needed to cater the needs of the local population and the tourists that stay or visit the village. There are vineyards around the village from which the excellent local wines are produced.
You can wander around the streets and squares of the village, experience the everyday life of the locals and visit the Argyros mansion which is a beautiful building with unique architecture.
Mesaria has a strategic position as it is located at a cross road that connects Fira with almost every place at the south part of the island!
