In the highlands of Svaneti, in a remote corner of Georgias Caucasus Mountains, the medieval towers of Mestia stand like linchpins that link more than 800 years of history to the present day. Here, family bonds and clan loyalties still matter more than national allegiance. Here, pagan rituals mingle with modern faiths and sensibilities.
