Kastania Mani South Peloponnese

16 km from Kardamili, surrounded by three mountains

Three of Taigetos slopes surround Kastania making it so naturally castellated that is difficult to see from even close.

The monadic roofs made of stone slates and the exquisite hagiographies in the small byzantine churches charm every visitor. Agios Georgios church of at the entrance of the village, Panagia church, Agios Nikolaos church with the three bells and Agios Petros church are particularly interesting.

The fountain of the village under huge walnuts equal to a true oasis and the tower house of Dourakis are the two reference points of the village.
