Arriving in Vessa, the visitor will have the opportunity to meet people who are friendly and hospitable, who mainly deal with agriculture and livestock farming and, of course, with the production of mastic. Keeping the traditions of their place, they do not miss the opportunity to celebrate, inviting people to celebrate with them.
Typical examples are celebrations in the various chapels of the village, which always end in feasts with singing and dancing, as well as the distillation of the “Souma” a homemade spirit drink, which is considered a prime opportunity for feasting and get-togethers even for the passers-by. Of course, there are also the well-established village festivals during the summer season.
