Vessa

Four kilometers from Elata, nineteen kilometers from the city of Chios, one can find Vessa, one of the many villages in which castles are predominate.

It is worth wandering around the narrow streets of Vessa in order to admire the architecture of the houses which remained intact and visiting the church of Agios Demetrios with its woodcut icon screen.

Though Vessa is a small village, it is characteristic for the medieval villages of southern Chios and it is also well preserved through the years, especially the corner towers of its castle and parts of the fortification wall.
