Moustheni – Mesoropi

Going in a south-westerly direction from Eleftheroupoli, you will encounter a number of villages whose common characteristic is dense vegetation and running water.

The place names merge with myth and history and the today: Chrysokastro (Golden Castle), Mesia, Melissa (bee), Avli, which took its name from the Thracian hero Hippeas Avleonitis, Melissokomeio, Pyrgohori, Domatia, the “United States”, as the locals call the villages of Mesotopo, Karavangeli, Dimaras and Siderohori and Platanotopos.

Moustheni attracts you like a magnet, with the arched bridges that unite its neighbourhoods, the traditional stone houses in the colours of ochre and blue, and the old Turkish school with the inscription in Arabic.

Mesoropi, literally hidden in the embrace of Mt Pangaio, with its imposing 19th-century mansions, watermill, stone fountains and bridges, the characteristic shady squares for a coffee or a meal, and the little lake at the spot of Nivrios immediately enchant even the most demanding visitor. The well-preserved Mesoropi footpath starts from within the village and is accompanied by plentiful waters that form small waterfalls and lakes along a route that lasts approximately 3.5 hours.

Distance from Kavala:
Moustheni 37 km
Mesoropi 40 km

Don’t forget to try the Tahini Florou that is made in Mesoropi. This is perhaps the best wholemeal tahini in Greece, with the sesame seeds roasted in a stone wood-fired oven!
