Mesa Mani through the Lenz
Photo tour around Gytheio
Its sharp land and austere nature render Mani enticing to photography lovers. Towers built in stone and nature bathed in light cradle unique traditional settlements with a medieval and Byzantine past. Surrounded by Mount Taygetus and a rocky landscape made up of canyons, caves and gorges, covered with forests and olive groves, the region’s geography does not give us the leeway to travel far away. The distances are long enough to “keep” the traveler “in Mani’s arms” granting him time to appreciate the landscape, the traditional lifestyle of the inhabitants, the food, and the relaxing accommodation at a slow pace. In other words, to explore the art of slow and meaningful life.
