Messolonghi (Mesolóngi, older forms Mesolongi, Misolonghi, Mesolongion) is a town of about 18,000 people (2001) in western Greece. The town is the capital of Aetolia-Acarnania and is also its third largest town. It is the seat of the municipality of Hiera Polis Mesolongiou (Sacred City of Messolonghi). Messolonghi is linked to, although bypassed since the 1960s by, GR-5/E55. The road to Astakos is to the northwest and there is also access to GE-48 to the east. The town had a railway station on the line to Agrinio but this has been abandoned since the 1970s.
