Itinerary

Ancient Sparta

We visit the ancient city of Sparta, where we will see its Acropolis, its ancient Theater and some Roman-era houses. Ancient Sparta was built on the banks of the Eurotas River in Laconia, southeast of the Peloponnese, and became known as a political-military force in Greece at the beginning of the Archaic period (800 BC to 479 BC) to reach its decline after its victory in the Peloponnesian War over Athens and its allies, where it imposed until 371 BC. her hegemony. That was the year when Sparta was defeated by the Thebans. In 362 BC it completely lost its power, along with the rise of the Kingdom of Macedonia, to be conquered later on by the Romans. An important creation that the visitor will have the opportunity to admire closely, is the statue of Leonidas in which his entire outfit is depicted in the battle of Thermopylae in 480 BC. during the second invasion of the Persians in Greece, after their defeat 10 years ago, in Marathon. We will also see the tomb of Leonidas (whose corpse, after 50 years, was transported and buried in Sparta in 430 BC), the statue of Lycurgus (the legislator of ancient Sparta who established the system of military education of the Spartans' society, according to Apollo's Oracle in Delphi) we will see the Museum of the Olive Tree and the Kaiada, where - contrary to the prevailing myth - official investigations, starting from 1983 to the present, have shown from the bone findings that there were no Spartan children with birth defects that were executed, but adult males and females instead (traitors, sentenced to death, criminals and prisoners of war)

Ancient Sparta

It was a pit or underground cavern at Sparta, into which state-prisoners or their corpses were thrown. We are going to see its majestic landscape and do a peregrination.

Castle of Mystras

Built on the slopes of Taygetos, the Castle of Mystras takes the visitor on a journey through time. It remains virtually indestructible and desolate, generously offering an unprecedented cultural experience (and not only) in landscapes that awakens the senses. Ready for a trip to history?
