Join Dimitsana & Stemnitsa Day Tour and discover Greek nature combined with modern history.
Mythology holds that Arcadia was home to the God Pan, the god of the wild, fields, groves and wooded valleys. In this virgin land rich in forests, nymphs and spirits, the natural and the supernatural coexisted harmoniously.
The fog hovering over the gorge ascends towards Dimitsana, dimming the view of the town’s charming stone houses. The wind blowing past the rocks on either side of the Lousios Gorge entrance is the only audible sound. Visitors could well lose themselves in an imaginary world here if it weren’t for the village clock, which strikes every half hour, around the clock. Dimitsana is the most significant village of Gortinia because of its history, natural beauty and its cultural activity. Dimitsana’s amphitheatrical landscape is remarkable, and so is and the four-plex buildings that are built on the cliff by the Lagkadian masons. Luxuriant vegetation is everywhere and fresh air fills your lungs.
Stemnitsa is a traditional dorp, built amphitheatrically contemplating the slopes of Mainalon and preserved in an exemplary way. The scenery is truly transcendent as the mountain embraces the stone houses of Stemnitsa along with its visitors. Its castle resembles its long-lasting history.
