Sparta

Just say I do and your dream will come true...

Surrounded by mounts Taýgetos and Párnon, Sparta was the kingdom of Menelaus and his beautiful queen, the most beautiful of all mortal women of her age, Helen. But Aphrodite had promised Paris of Troy the most beautiful woman on earth in return of a favour, so the Trojan prince came to Sparta to claim his trophy. He abducted Helen and travelled back to his homeland. Menelaus wanted his wife back and talked all the other kings of Greece into fighting against the Trojans. That’s pretty much how the most celebrated war of the myths started.
This land will offer you a ‘laconic’ journey back in time throughout Greek history. The ancient Greek world comes to life through the museums and sacred sites of our region and the Byzantine era prevails within the walls of the castle city of Mystras.
The natural environment of Sparta's region will surely enchant you. Majestic mountains, Taygetos and Parnonas, have a unique natural beauty of caves, ravines, springs and rivers, a landscape of untamed beauaty that can be explored by hikers and cyclists. Nature-loving visitors can admire the breathtaking color palette that only nature can create.

Authentic natural beauty, picturesque villages, crystal clear waters, lush vegetation, interesting flora and fauna, imposing snowy peaks make up the beautiful landscape of Sparta. Here, in this mythical place of heroes and culture, you can travel back to the historic traces of Paleologos and other legendary emperors, to castles, palaces, monasteries and churches that will transport you to another era.
Experience the unique customs and traditions of the region which are preserved by the residents with care and devoutness. Explore the mountains of Taygetos and Parnonas, warder in every corner of the land and discover its obvious and hidden beauty.
The city has been built upon the site of ancient Sparta. The lush, fertile plain surrounding Sparta is home to olive and citrus groves, thickets of mulberry and other trees. To the southwest stands Mt. Taygetos with its towering peaks and wild beauty. To the east of the city stands the Parnonas mountain range, which is forested predominantly with Greek fir trees and other pines.

The origins of modern Sparta date back to October 20, 1834, when King Otto issued a decree on the construction of the new city. Bavarians city planners, headed by Fr. Stauffert, designed a city of 100,000 inhabitants based on the neo-classical architectural model.
Today Sparta maintains its good design, boasting large squares and wide streets lined with trees, while many of the older buildings remain in excellent condition. The city of Sparta is the economic, administrative and cultural center of Lakonia.
Visitors are always highly impressed by the centrally-located main square which is dominated by the most imposing neo-classical building in Sparta, the City Hall. Built in 1909, City Hall bears the signature of the Greek architect, G. Katsaros. With its glorious history and its proximity to Byzantine Mystras, the city of Sparta attracts the attention of many visitors, making it a prime tourist destination.
Due to its extensive and prominent history, the name Sparta is a world-renowned symbol of heroism and sacrifice balanced by a simple, austere way of life.
