In a stunning area in the southern Peloponnese, in an impressively theatrical scenery, full of contrasts of crystal clear blue waters, majestic cypresses, wild olive groves, green slopes and distant snow-capped mountains, is Kardamili, a beautiful seaside village on the eastern edge of the Messinian Gulf.
It was preserved as a small or big city, with its ancient name for 3,240 years. It is Kardamili the Archaic, the Messinian, of the Liberal Laconians, the Romans, the Byzantines, the Kardamili of Mani, of the Captains and the Troupades, or Mourtzinon.
