Oichalia (Greek: Οιχαλία) is a village and a municipality in Messenia, Greece. The seat of the municipality is in Meligalas.[1] Oichalia is known for its rich expanse of olive trees and fig orchards. At its height the village boasted several cafes, a bustling farmer's market, and a popular open air cinema run by the Limberopoulos family. Other families, such as the Hantzopoulos and Karbaliotis clans, the former a cobbler and the latter a butcher, helped make Oichalia the destination of choice for Messinians in need of quality meats and shoes.
