  • Very pretty. It is well the tumultuous life of the site in the alleys winding up to the Castle! the Castle deserves at the top but what a magical view over the plain of Sparta!

  • The ruins of the ancient city are wonderful, I spent hours walking through them and not tired of looking. The last entry is the 3:00 pm and you can stay till 6:30 pm. I got the 3:00 pm and gave time for almost anything, but I recommend coming early to explore with calm

  • I was happy we rented a car, for places like this. Quite easy to make our way around, but I will say, could be tricky for persons that aren't strong physically. It was less busy than I would have envi...  more »

  • So much history, looks and feels like a magical place in autumn
  • Certo nice site. Wonderful start be constructions and Byzantine churches still there to remember us of the previous civilizations. The visit is tough. Site has 2 entrances: an upper one and a lower one. You can find many suggestions but in the end I suggest to start from the upper entrance. While still in full energy, go to the top castle. Then visit the site by going down. I suggest avoiding whatever is after the "palace" (patanassa or something similar). On the map is that big archway doing a large Demi-ellipse on the left of the palace. There a couple of nice niches, but not worth the detour. Rather concentrate on the right part of the map, when I the southern side of the site, which after going through the gate.
  • Bloody wonderful experience! A true must see if you are ever nearby. The old architecture would take you breath away!
  • A remarkable Byzantine fortified town built up the side of a mountain with a fort at the summit. Nearly all the buildings have been destroyed but a number of the churches have been preserved along with their original frescoes. Lovely and peaceful location with fantastic views over the spartan plains, great place to just wander around the winding footpaths.
  • Fascinating and impressive, that such a small place have had such an influence in its time.
