Messolonghi: A city to inspire heroes

Some of the most momentous events of the 1821 Revolution against the Ottoman occupation occurred here.

One of the most glorious chapters in its history books, the memory of this great sacrifice still reverberates to this day in the collective consciousness of the Greek nation.
