Mirmigi is a small Mastiha village, built on hills covered with olive trees, lentisks and many other kinds of trees that account for the area’s lush vegetation and create a magnificent landscape. At the western edge of the village, there is a narrow, picturesque valley with plane trees, crossed by a small stream. The sea view from the village is unique. Mirmigi, like so many other villages, was almost completely destroyed during the big earthquake of 1881. For that reason, most of its buildings, though stone-built, are modern-day constructions. The village is believed to have been first founded in prehistoric times, according to archaeological evidence (Pelasgic walls). Venetians left behind several elements, mostly stone-built constructions, fountains and wells, some of which have survived up to this day. Visitors can admire today its well-preserved alleys and buildings, two churches and the stone-built village square with the acacias.
