peloponnesos-greece-111.jpg | Exploring the Peloponnesos of Greece: Mani, Monemvasia, Gythio, Mystras, Koroni

Gythio, Mani, Peloponnesos, Greece, May 2013. Octopus drying in the harbour. Gythio is located in middle south of Peloponese at the center of the Laconian Gulf. It is a lively, charming little harbour town. The most of its houses are two- or three-storey neo-classical mansions, stuck to the steep side of the Mt. "Koumaros". A long sea-side promenade, the colourful fishing boats, the narrow streets and stairways produce a typical Greek environment. 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.
