Location: Vathia      by: Giuseppe Marzulli
Area: Greece      Date: April 2013

Vathia is a kind of fortress village, located in the Mani peninsula, in south-east Laconia (Peloponnese).
It is characterized by the so-called tower-houses.
For my taste, it is a place of great charm.
The village had been abandoned by its inhabitants, becoming a ghost town. In recent decades it had been rediscovered and there had been some attempts at restructuring. As can be seen, the restructuring was however only partial.


Ein Herzchen auf den ersten Blick, aber zum Rätseln ... nichts für mich.

Looks like a restauration project of an old villagio or borgo. Quite sure Italy but hard to decide in which part (some parts as Alto Adige are of course excluded ...)
