Just a breath from Kalamata stands mount Kalathi, a mountain visible from any side of the city. You can see it sometimes clear, sometimes lost in the clouds. It is very rare for a mountain of such height to be located so close to a city and the sea. On its slopes picturesque villages smothered in green and even higher on its summit, forests of fir and pine trees and a stunning views to the sea, Kalamata, and of course to the gigantic Taygetos
We begin our tour from the cosmopolitan suburb of Kalamata the village of Kato Verga by following the cobbled path ascending west to the village of Ano Verga. A historic village perched on the mountainside with a plethora of old stone houses, narrow alleys and springs with crystal waters. We discover an authentic traditional Greek village lost among walnut, mulberry and chestnut and belted with numerous chapels. The view from the village over the Messinian Bay and the city of Kalamata is breathtaking offering also cool air even on the hottest summer days. Outside the village on the old threshing floors we stop for rest and a picnic with tastes from local traditional delicacies and fruits. We continue acsending to the top of the mountain, leaving behind us the last terraces with orchards and pastures. The path goes up smoothly and the first firs make their appearance. We are now on the top in a dense fir forest watching the summits of central Taygetos. Here there is absolute tranquility; we hear only the rustle of leaves.
