From the second millennium before Christ to the present, it has lived to the beat of history. The Mycenaean Civilization, Bassae, Olympia, and Epidaurus are among the most important monuments of Ancient Greece. Mistras and Aghia Sophia at Monemvassia are jewels of the Byzantine era. The castles of the Morea are famous; most eminent among them are those of Acrocorinth, Karitena, Kalamata, Koroni, and most picturesque of all, the castle of Methoni.
Nafplion, one of Greece’s loveliest and most delightful towns, was the first capital of the modern state.
The mountain villages of the Peloponnese and the whole of the Mani are among the most scenic parts of Greece; here the grey stone has become a marvel in the hands of the builder.
Whether set against the background of the magnificent olive groves of Messinia or Eleia, or the endless vineyards of Achaia and Corinth, all these features are found in the Peloponnese.
The gods refined the Peloponnese still furtger, lining its lengthy coastline with sand on the west, with rocks on the south and east and with lush vegetation on the north. All the soil of the Peloponnese is filled with history and antiquity.
