Mystras is a byzantine castro about 5km outside of Sparta. It was built in the early 13th century and served at the seat of the Latin Principality of Archaea. It was passed from one government to the next.
Steph and I in the castle, above the city.
Standing in the window of a a church in the middle level of town.
Liz and I sitting on a bench, on the way up to the castle.
Suzy and I near the entrance.

Another church ... near the entrance.

It was a beautiful day to explore through the city. We walked up to the castle first and took in the vewi of the surrounding mountains. Then we began the descent down to the exit. It was a sizable town with study buildings, and little caves to explore in. We gathers flowers on the way down - blood red poppies, daisies and little purple things.
