Vessa was created when 3 smaller settlements were unified into one village. It is a semi-mountainous village, built on a valley. It is a very picturesque, medieval village with narrow alleys and traditional architecture. It is characterized by all the traits of a village-castle and has preserved over centuries its original architectural and town-planning structure. The corner turrets of its castle are also very well preserved, along with parts of its fortified walls. Agios Dimitrios church is especially interesting, because of its unique wood-carved icon. The village square is perhaps one of the most picturesque squares on the island, dominated by the village’s central tower and dotted by traditional cafés, in total harmony with the aura of that settlement.
