Messolonghi Town and Lagoon
Messolonghi is a vivid, non-touristic city with friendly and welcoming people.
Messolonghi is also known as the “Holy” city. It earned this name due to the heroic behaviour of the inhabitants during the independence fight against the Turkish occupiers in the 19th Century.
For Messolonghi the production of sea salt by means of the large salt pans, is an important source of income. Also the salt works attract many particular sea birds.
The Messolonghi lagoon is one of the most important wetlands of Europe. You will encounter birds of prey, amphibians, reptiles, swamp and sea turtles.
Natural Mud and Salt Spa’s
Just minutes away from the Marina lays the best kept secrets from Europe: The natural mud and salt spa’s. Every season thousands of Greeks take a refreshing and healing mineral mud or salt bath.
Several beaches are located close to the Messolonghi Marina. They can be reached on foot, by boat, bicycle or car.
