Found some pics from the last time I was there, quite a long time ago now.

The entrance to the city of Sparta

King Leonidas

And the famous words -Molon Labe ( come and get it) on the plaque underneath

Nestled in a valley between two snow capped mountains of Taygetus and Parnonas, the scenery is mainly orange groves and olive trees With villages scattered about

The site of ancient Sparta

This is the cliff they inspected the babies and discarded the weak or miss-shapen ones like @wizurd

You want to invade Sparta, you best get ready to climb this wall , and this wasn’t built by trump

Lot of spears waiting for you

And his tasks

This was the local brothel

I take it that suck it from the back was a recent thing, apparently not

Area of theatre and the arts

B2-DF536-E-B0-F2-48-C4-9-A99-A0-A6-BA2-D6-D6-A.jpg


We then went to a place called Mystras, a lot of people think this is ancient Sparta but is actually from the Byzantine period around the 14th or 15th century

We then travelled down to the coast

Very rocky and arid

Finally there

What you are looking at here are the southern fingers of Laconia, peleponese

C449-BB49-1-F98-4448-BEAE-53-B18-A843-CEB.jpg

You can see these fingers jutting out into the Mediterranean sea

Beautiful coastal drive

Beautiful eating in the little tavernas by the water with octopus hanging on lines drying out, and that sweet rose home made wine
