Old Taxiarchis of Mesta

The Church of Old Taxiarchis, situated within the medieval fortified settlement of Mesta, is a vaulted one-aisled basilica, which became two-aisled in 1794. The old area comprises of blind arches with decorative phialostomia and the circular conch of the altar, whereas the north aisle comprises of a cross-vaulted ceiling. It is worth noting the remarkable frescoes that have been discovered as well as its wood-carved iconostas with many scenes from the Old and New Testaments, work dating back to 1833, which represents the high standard of local woodcarving.
