Byzantine tour & Taygetos mountain

Sparti lies in one of the valleys of Taygetos mountain range,on the same site where the ancient city stood.Only a few ruins remain today.5 km away, at the top of a hill overlooking the Eurotas valley, you can find the deserted city of Mystras which was , from 1250 until 1450 , the Byzantine capital of the Peloponnese.The massive fortress,the elegant churches and monasteries with domes, all decorated with marvellous frescoes, show that Mystras was once a brilliant and glorious city.
