The Mani is a sea-swept peninsula in the Southern Peloponnese, stretching down from the rocky spine of the Taigetos mountain range to the southernmost tip of Balkan Europe. Terraced olive groves climb up to snow-capped peaks, and hidden coves offer secluded swims in both the Ionian and Aegean seas. In the spring the mountains are carpeted with wild flowers, contrasting with the stony grey of the tower houses which are particular to this region of Greece. Varied and often challenging walking combined with Byzantine chapels, classical remains and caves reveal a side of Greece which remains largely undiscovered. Taygetus is the highest mountain in the Peloponnese (2,407 m). The name came from Taygete, daughter of Atlas. The Byzantines referred to it as Pentadaktylos by five struts showing the mountain on the east side. The relief of Taygetos, formed by the alternation of mountains, forests, canyons and streams, giving the area of natural beauty, makes it as attracting destination for mountain sports.
