“View to Evrotas valley from the top of Taygetos mountain ” Hiking experience :
In Taygetos there are many well-preserved trails that until recently connected the plain of Sparta with the mountain villages.
Hiking on them is an excellent way of connecting with the plethora of nature and cultural elements of Taygetos. One of those trails is the one we offer with starting point being the village Parori near Mystras. The old path, wisely crafted, will lead us up smoothly to the abandoned monastery of Panagia Zagouna, built in a large hollow of the rock. We will continue through the verdant Chrysolangado to the Faneromeni Monastery, the highest point of the route. From there we will go down to Lagada’s stream. The last part of the hike is a spectacular trail that goes down the stream. The path, in several places, is carved on towering rocks. The view of the hillsides, the rich vegetation and the clear water make up an amazing landscape. A small detour leads us to the cave church of Panagia Lagadiotissa, filled with 14th century frescoes. The end of the hike is the village Parori, the place we departed from.

In five minutes from the center of Sparta starts a beautiful circular tour  of mount Taygetos by foot!
Our trip starts from Parori (altitude 270m) along a stone path to the old monastery, named "Panagia Zagouna". The view of Eyrota's valley is magnificent.
We enjoy the forest of oaks and firs. As we visit the old monastery of Faneromeni (altitude 780m), we start descending the famous E4 (european path) until the church of Sotira where we reach the steep gorge lagada.
As the flow of the river creates waterfalls and small lakes at the bottom, we descend the cliff from its top along a small path, surrounded by a colorful landscape.
The view of the gorge is amazing and the experience of this hiking tour remains unforgetable!
