An evening spent as a sky watcher is pure magic, as participants explore the fantastic legends and romantic heroes that surround the heavenly bodies with which we share this universe.

Listen to your hobby astrologer- instructor, navigate the solar system and weave fantastic tales about the constellations above as you peer through the telescope or sky binoculars provided for you.

Bask in the soft light of the night sky, allowing your imagination to transport you to faraway worlds of gods of Greek Mythology and monsters while munching on complementary Mars, Venus and other Planets.

Pause for a moment and ask those questions about the universe which are nagging at the back of your mind as you refer to the personalized constellation sheet provided to you as part of the tour…

Each Sky watching tour is designed to reflect the interests of participants, whether there are two or 2,000 like the stars above us…

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. This whole help us to discover he magical Solar system without huge f light around us.

According to the number of sky binoculars and telescopes included in the program, guides are assigned to assist and amuse participants as they discover the magic of our solar system, the Greek Mythology , the Greek Gods,Myths and legends !!
