Mesavlia is a small mountainous settlement in Chania, with approximately 50 residents. The settlement is located at an altitude of 500 meters, 44 km from the city of Chania.
Mesavlia is built on the northwestern slopes of the White Mountains and from there begins the Gorge that leads to the village of Deliana.
The crossing of the Gorge of Deliana – Mesaflia that lasts approximately one hour, is easy and it is recommended even for children, as it passes through a five km long dirt road. Lush vegetation with plane trees and chestnut trees around the creek accompany walkers. Near Mesaflia through the Gorge, you will have the opportunity to see the small church of Agia Paraskevi, which is built on a rock.
At Mesavlia there is no variety of taverns and restaurants, due to the fact that the village is small. For this reason, most of the visitors prefer to cross the Gorge of Mesaflia – Deliana, where there are small taverns. Moreover, in the neighboring village of Gra Kera, you can visit the ruined monastery of Virgin Mary.
