Sightseeing in the Valley of Sparta
The famous Byzantine castle of Mystras, beautiful olive groves, traditional villages and small ancient sites offer great opportunities for sightseeing in Sparta. Two mountain ranges protect the valley - Mt. Taygetos in the west and Mt. Parnon in the east. The mountains hide old monasteries and mountain villages, and are great for hiking.
