Mani my homeland

Mani is the place where my both parents come from. Even if I was born and live in Athens, it still remains my favorite place and I spend there 4-5 months a year. I consider myself almost local, when I'm there, as I meet many people and know the area pretty well.

For any additional info for the place, feel free to contact me.

But for a first introduction with Maniots, their history, their customs and the beautiful place visit my LACONIAN PREFECTURE page and learn about Gythio, Sparta, Monemvasia, Vathia etc.

Thank you for your virtual visiting of my homeland!

Special thanks to the creator of www.mani.org.gr site for the increadibly amount of info, he let me use for this site and for the beautiful pics you will enjoy in many of my tips.

    The Mani facinates me and I'm about to get stuck into reading Patrick Leigh Fermors "The Mani". Your site and the book should open my insight when Walking Europe later this year.
