Langada Pass    This route through the Taygetos Mountains is one of the most scenic drives in Greece, climbing through stands of evergreens to the summit at 1,524m (5,000 ft.). The most dramatic segment begins about 20km (12 miles) west of Sparta, where the road clings to the cliffs of the Langada Gorge. From these heights, the Spartans threw babies deemed physically unable to become soldiers.    Photo Caption: Driving over the Langada Pass, Taygetos, Greece.    Photo by taver/Flickr.com
