peloponnesos-greece-100.jpg | Exploring the Peloponnesos of Greece: Mani, Monemvasia, Gythio, Mystras, Koroni

Peloponnesos, Greece, May 2013. an olive oil press refers tho Vathia's mainstay. At the heart of Laconian Mani, Vathia (Vatheia) strongly resists the passage of time offering a journey into the past where its residents defended the prospective intruders entrenched in their imposing defensive. Vathia is one of the most impressive traditional villages. The entire settlement, is considered a monument of the region’s architectural heritage of the 18th and 19th centuries, during which most of Vathia’s towerhouses were built. The towers are unique examples of folk fortification around the Greece. The southern and middle tips of the Peloponnesos are called The Mani. This isolated region in the districts of Lakonia and Messinia is littered with Byzantine era churches and Ottoman era tower house villages. The Peloponnese peninsula is the real heart of traditional Greece. Ancient mountain villages interrupt the olive groves that line the rugged coastline that is surrounded by deep blue and turquoise waters of the Mediterranean.
