Fresh mountain air

In the highlands of Arcadia at the Peloponnese in the small mountain village Dimitsána.

Dimitsana Griechenland Peleponnes

The small tranquil mountain village Dimitsána is the starting point for beautiful hikes in the Peleponnes mountain region. The village is situated on a ridge at an altitude of about a thousand metres and is therefore much cooler.
From here you have an impressive view of the Lousios valley below and the Arcadian mountain landscape..

Of course, the place has meanwhile adjusted to the Tourismous, thus one finds numerous small accommodations, partly very high-priced, but also a lot of taverns and cafes..

Nearby is the monastery Prodromou, which was built in an impressive way into the rocky landscape like many other monasteries.

Because of its location, Dimitsána became famous during the Greek Revolution of 1821 against the Ottoman Empire. | Greece

  1. Another side of Greece, as the sights that are most “sold” are the white and blue houses by the sea.
    A picturesque and very attractive place.
