Arcadia & the menalon
Represented in the Greek and Roman mythology as an earthly paradise, a utopia, Arcadia is in the center of the Peloponnese. This depiction is not far from what the visitor encounters today in the part spreading on Mount Menalon, a hospitable fir mountain full of legends, home to God Pan of woods, fields, and flocks, and the dryads, nymphs and other spirits. Menalon is flowed by river Ladon, who spills into a big artificial lake, river Alphios and river Lousios, in the center, which hosts the highest habitat diversity and human activities.
