DIMITSANA

Dimitsana, imposing and amphitheatrically built at the slopes of Mainalo, about 59 kilometers northwest of Tripolis and surrounded by verdant hillsides, dazzles visitors with its stone houses and cobbled narrow streets, the scenic churches and the Open-Air Water Power Museum, but also with its bridges, springs, mills and the natural beauty of River Lousios that flows nearby. Dimitsana flourished from the 17th until the beginning of the 20th century. The main professions of the residents were trade and metallurgy. Its economic prosperity led to its intellectual prosperity with the establishment of the famous Greek School.

MAINALON

The mountain Mainalon occupies the center of the Peloponnese and a large part of the prefecture of Arcadia. It stretches from the plateau of Tripoli to Lousios River in the west and from Megalopolis until Ladonas north, in an area of approximately 1,000,000 acres. The pure mountain zone (contour of 1,000 m.) Is over 700,000 acres and makes it one of the most extensive mountain ranges of Greece. The constant changes of tens of peaks and ravines with hundreds of mountain pastures and plateaus, give an impressive relief. The very fact that most of the plateau show a negative slope (dolines, Goupata, lacquers) makes Mainalo unique geomorphological formation throughout Greece.

GORTYN

Gortynia is perhaps the most magical place of Arcadia. The mountainous territory, difficult access to places, wonderful nature, isolated but picturesque villages, create those conditions that encourage prospecting and exploration away from secularism and mass tourism. It is no coincidence that the region will meet many historical monasteries and hermitages, which fit perfectly in the conditions mentioned above.

STEMNITSA

Stemnitsa is one of the most beautiful and historical villages in the prefecture of Arcadia, and is located between Dimitsana and Karytaina. The village is built onto the slopes of Mount Mainalo, near River Lousios, ancient Gortyna and numerous renowned monasteries amidst cherry, walnut and plane trees. During the Turkish domination, Stemnitsa evolved into a major hub for metallurgy and its -mostly itinerant- craftsmen (goldsmiths, silversmiths, blacksmiths, bell and cowbell manufacturers, coppersmiths, etc.) created exceptional works of art, even beyond the borders of Arcadia.
