  • Visit to the Peloponnese without include the fortress city of Mystras, just no! The Castle at the top with the "air" in the Valley of the Evrotas River, stone paths, Byzantine churches, the ruins of the old city, the palaces, the shady green corners, Byzantine frescoes, the "heavy" historical past that conveys the place with eloquent silences of ill-fated buildings, make up a highly satiating and pithy content visit. Calculate about 3 or more hours for a proper visit. To have supplied water and wear closed sneakers or promenade with comfortable touch and no sandals or open-toe sandals. Reaching, parked in the lower entrance, we went by taxi to the upper entrance, and we started from there on our visit. So, we avoided to do duplicate tiring routes, we made our visit more relaxed going down and ended up out of the lower entrance straight to our car. I would advise you to do the same. Fantastic feeling at the end of each visit!

  • It is built on a very steep hill. Make sure you wear flat, lightweight shoes. Amazing views!
  • The amazing archeological site of the Mistra's old Byzantine city. Medieval atmosphere, beautiful place to walk around the historical palace, the houses and churches. The entrance is 6 euros on winter and 12 euros on summer for adults. Absolutely worth visiting.
  • old Byzantine city on one side of the hill. there are three different level of the city. from the upper part the view is amazing. totally worth.
  • Very beautiful and interesting to visit historical place. But be prepared for hours of walking through steep, narrow paths. There are around 2 km between the lower parking and the top building and 500 m from the upper parking. Still it is worth visiting.
  • Simply one of the world's best Byzantine fortress towns. Sadly in ruins. However, an active monestary is still here. A must visit place if your into Byzantine history, archeology, or military history
