SUGGESTED HOTEL: HOTEL PANORAMA
Archaeological Byzantine Site of Mystras
Starting from the ticket office at the Upper Town, the path begins to descend, past Nafplio Gate and you reach the small church of Agia Sofia, with some interesting frescoes. From here the view across the valley is great, with the Palace of Despots (in restoration) which dominates the landscape.
Further downhill, Monemvasia Gate is the access to the Lower Town. Making sure to take the path that goes to the right immediately after the gate, you can reach the most valuable building in Mystra: The Pantanassa Convent. The church, which dates back to 1300, is the only one still inhabited by nuns and enchants visitors with already beautiful frescoes, the apotheosis of Byzantine art. Continuing you can see the small and peaceful Perivleptos Monastery dug into the rock, with fourteenth-century frescoes still intact and where you can access some ancient private residences. Just before the release is the beautiful Mtripolis, with a magnificent stone facade and its remarkable interiors that include sacred furnishings and a throne in finely decorated wood.
Admission € 12,00 - Hours 8:00 until sunset
