PELOPONNESE, MANI, LIMENI

Gifted with great history, natural beauty and cultural heritage, Mani, a geographical and cultural region in Greece, offers many opportunities for filming. The region of Mani is the central peninsula (about 72 Km long and no wider than 28 Km) of the three which extend southwards from the Peloponnese in southern Greece. To the east is the Laconian Gulf, to the west the Messenian Gulf. The peninsula forms a continuation of the Taygetos mountain range, the western spine of the Peloponnese. Mani boasts for its stone-built impressive towers, some scattered around abandoned others restored, which are landmarks in the region. Offering a highly dramatic scenery emerging in counter-dialogue with the crystal-clear waters of the Peloponnese coastline, there are about 800 towers and 6 castles in Mani, Byzantine churches and classical archaeological sites. High rocks, inaccessible siliceous shores, breathtaking caves with underground waterways (Diros caves) and the unique local cuisine form the uniqueness of wild Mani. The 250 villages and hamlets of Mani, such as Kardamyli, Limeni (photos), Altomira, Vathia, Aeropoli, Gytheio, preserve the local tradition. The capital city of Mani is Areopoli.
