Each day you will discover a new suprise : a known or hidden landscape or hood, a traditional village or a new route at the plenty ravines,  will amaze you with the rich cultural diversity which provide you.

Messinian Mani..
the Land of traditional stoned villages , tower stoned houses and castles, wild and untamed !!
A land of tower houses, castles, ancient sites, Byzantine chapels, beautiful beaches and spectacular ravines in the Messinian Mani Peloponnese

Dry, bare and rugged. Mani is the land of the prickly pear, bristling with forbidding tower houses, stone villages, Byzantine chapels, delightful coves and astonishing caves. The people here are frugal and close-knit, still adhering to traditions, centuries-old bloodlines and family ties.

Barricaded behind the crags of Mt Taygetos , the fortified stoned towers and ready for battle, the Maniots developed a powerful sense of autonomy, answerable to no one. What you see today is only what they consider permissible and acceptable. But you’ll be overwhelmed with images of authentic Greece because here, in this far corner of Peloponnese,in the Messinian Mani,everything is dramatic and bewitching.

Taygetos,the imperious mountain of Peloponnese ..
Taygetos Mountain is the highest mountain range of Peloponnese which combines beautiful hiking routes, picturesque mountainous villages, creeks, stone bridges and trees. The top of the mountain is called “Profitis Ilias” (Prophet Elias) and is located at 2.407 meters altitude. From Taygetos begin two rivers, Evrotas River which flows in the Laconian Gulf and Nedontas River which flows in the Messenian Gulf.

The name Taygetos derives from “Taygeti” who was the daughter of Pleionis and Atlantas according to Greek Mythology. During Byzantine period the mountain was also called “Pentadaktylos” which means “five fingers” in Greek. The name was related to the 5 tops of the mountain range.
The mountain provides plenty of hiking routes which are well signposted and attract a lot of travelers all year , especially during the summer period.

Athens, the capital and largest city of Greece..
Learn and meet the spirit of the capital and birthplace of Democracy !!
Athens dominates the Attica region and is one of the world’s oldest cities, with its recorded history spanning over 3,400 years and its earliest human presence started somewhere between the 11th and 7th millennium BC.

Classical Athens was a powerful city-state. A center for the arts, learning and philosophy, home of Platon’s Academy and Aristotle’s Lyceum, it is widely referred to as the cradle of Western civilization and the birthplace of democracy, largely because of its cultural and political impact on the European continent, and in particular the Romans. In modern times, Athens is a large cosmopolitan metropolis and central to economic, financial, industrial, maritime, political and cultural life in Greece.
