The villages of Menalon Trail
The villages of Mt Menalon
Within the galaxy of villages and towns of Arcadia, Gortynia has a special place. Vytina, Dimitsana and Lagadia are the first names that come to mind after Tripoli when we discover the geography or history of the Peloponnese.
Thanks to the richness of natural resources and the security that the region generously offered, the permanent population, living in villages and hamlets, was supplemented by waves of populations seeking the safety of the highlands in turbulent times.
