Mesta is the furthest from the medieval villages, but also the most well preserved. The form of the village and its architecture is totally unique. The houses are built side by side with no gaps, leaving only two main gates to the village. The streets are narrow and most are covered with arches on which houses are built. The whole village has been designed and built as a labyrinth in order to prevent the raiding parties of pirates can easily reach the center of the village where the main buildings are. The oldest monument of Mesta (other than the village it self) is the church of the Paleos Patriarchies. The inhabitants of the village are also preserving their traditional customs and traditions. Accommodations, cafes and taverns are available at Mesta.
