"Mystras" Greece Things to Do Tip by Paul2001

Greece Things to Do: 910 reviews and 1,597 photos

  Byzantine Church, Mystras
by Paul2001
 
 

A wonderful historical sight just outside of Sparta. Mystra is sort of a Byzantine ghost town that works its way up a large hill. The hill is crowned by a castle from which there are stupendous views of the nearby mountains and valleys. The churches are both beautiful and interesting. The sight takes a good four hours to visits and you should where walking shoes because of the steep trails. I have included more pictures of Mystras in a travelogue section.

Address: A couple of kilometers north of Sparta.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
