Pyrgos, Stoupa, Messinia Mani, Peloponnese, Greece

Pyrgos (or Pirgaki), 48 km from Kalamata, is built on a hill – a natural observatory at an altitude of 360 meters, on the road leading from coastal Stoupa to other villages on the slopes of Taygetos. The village is called (not without reason) "the balcony of Mani". During Ottoman rule, due to its strategic position, Pyrgos took the role of observatory for captains living in the region. The village, with its old picturesque houses and courtyards is famous for the magnificent view and for the number of remarkable Byzantine and post-Byzantine churches.

About 6 km from Pyrgos is the unspoilt village of Stoupa with warm summers and mild winters. With two lovely sandy golden beaches (as well as several smaller beaches), this once sleepy village has become more and more popular as a tourist destination but still retains genuine Greece.

Stoupa is located in a fascinating area called Mani. This is the only part of Greece that was never conquered by invaders. The population, the Maniots, built tower houses (so-called Mani towers) where they took shelter during the countless local feuds that were fought here. Some of these Mani towers have been restored and can still be seen in the area. Welcome to the magical Mani!
