Location

Explore Mavrovouni - Black mountain

Mavrovouni is a village about 2 km south of the town of Gytheio, in Laconia, Greece. It is located on a steep hill of dark rock between the hill of Kumaros above Gytheio and the alluvial plain of the Vardhounia river lies a belt of low sandy hills. The district is rich in wines, olives, and oranges.

The beach of Mavrovouni is visited every year by the loggerhead sea turtles which are commonly called Caretta-Caretta, and at the beach, they dig nests to lay their eggs.

The beach is long with plenty of space, you can find as well cafes and restaurants and the sea is just refreshing and wonderful!

Gytheio

You can visit the traditional picturesque village of Gytheio that is nearby, there you can find wonderful restaurants, explore the architecture of the town and visit Cranae island, a tiny island from where the reason for the Trojan war started.

Alongside Mani Peninsula you will find stone towers that have from 4 to 5 floors. They were used as residences and courtyards that were surrounded by walls. The towers were very carefully planned and were used not only as residential places but as military objects for protection. They were equipped with loopholes, boilers for water, and special places at tower corners for throwing stones at enemies.

From time to time pirates, Turks, and other enemies tried to occupy Mani, but all their attacks were in vain. Towers were also used as hiding and attacking places during different conflicts and clashes caused by vendetta. Due to towers, Mani managed to save its freedom and independence.Ιt was a free place in enslaved Greece and many plans and decisions for the liberation of our Motherland were taken in these towers.

Western travelers used to compare the Maniot towers with towers and fortresses of Medieval Europe, of England and Scotland.
