Mani (Μάνη)

Mani is the middle peninsula of southern Peloponnese, Greece. A gorgeous wild landscape of olive trees, prickly pears, tiny villages, byzantine chapels, and lots of stone. A place of unique character and great history where clans with their own towers, war, piracy, vendetta defined social life for many centuries. Nowadays a hospitable destination off the beaten path.
