1 min read
Dimitsánais one of the most popularGreekwinter destinations, along with the nearby Stemnitsaand Vytina, in the heart of Arcadia. The village is built like an amphitheater overlooking the Lousios River & valley and the plains of Megalopoli.
The village is surrounded by snow-covered mountaintops and lush pine forests. Some of its most famous sights are the six remaining legendary Gunpowder Mills that used to produce gunpowder for the Greek War of Independence (celebrated this Friday!), the traditional homes of the heroes of that war, the Philosophou and Timiou Prodromou Monasteries; and the archaeological site of Gortyna.
But the best thing to do?Just relax and unwind! Eat traditionalGreek food at a local taverna, curl up by a fireplace with a cup ofmountain tea, take a walk in the village and enjoy its lush nature...who needs anything more?!
