Population: 34.416
Description: Messolonghi is located in the prefecture of Aitoloakarnania and it's name probably comes from the Latin words messo and laghi (messolaghi) which means "a place surrounded by lakes". The area was under Venetian rule and the inhabitants were mainly fishermen who lived in floating houses made of reeds. It became known in Greece, and throughout the world, for the historic exit of it's residents after a year of resistance to the siege of Ibrahim Pasha. The modern Messolonghi is a beautiful city, with traditional buildings many of them inhabited by great figures of the Greek Revolution and the political life of modern Greece.
