This unique and entertaining combination of lore and reality can last up to 3 hours and is priced on a per person basis. Before the tour, participants can familiarize themselves with the night sky located at Alagonia or Nedousa village at Taygetos mountain that offer information on constellations, planets and the solar system.
Alagonia village is located on the region that in ancient times was called Denthaliatida country and from time to time it belonged either in Messinia or Lakonia. During the Ottoman rule Alagonia was called Sitsova and was the head village of six villages known as Pisina Choria. The current name comes from the ancient Alagonia, although the current position is not identical with that of the ancient city.
At a distance of about one thousand meters from the square of Alagonia (a path crossed only on foot) you will find the traditional fountain Nika in a landscape with big rocks, tall plane trees, abundant water and waterfall.
Nedousa village,a beautiful mountainous hamlet of 130 inhabitants located at an altitude of 701m. Its old name was Megali Anastasova. The initial location of the village was near the small church of Agia Varvara. It is an old village created before the 8th century and played a major role in the Greek Revolt in 1821. In Chorigoskala (a dangerously narrow rocky passage) the women and children threw themselves from the cliffs so as to not be captured by the Turks during the Greek War of Independence in 1821. In the village boasts the house of Nikitaras, a hero of the Greek War of Independence.
Nedousa region abounds with cultural heritage. Many are the stone bridges over the Nedon river and near the ravine a crag has been created for the lovers of climbing. The water mills and the plane tree with a huge hollow are set in a beautiful landscape. A little further there is the Mardaki monastery, built in 1504, which contains the miraculous icon of Panagia (Holy Mother of God) found in Siderovageno.
