Photographer's Note

Close to city of Sparta,in Peloponessus,it can see the very big archeological site of Mistras,that was a fortified town in Morea (the medieval Peloponnese), on Mt. Taygetos.
In the 14th and 15th centuries, it served as the capital of the Byzantine Despotate of the Morea, experiencing a period of prosperity and cultural flowering. The site remained inhabited throughout the Ottoman period, when it was mistaken by Western travellers for ancient Sparta.
