Καρδαμύλη, Δυτική Μάνη, Μεσσηνία.
Kardamyli, West Mani, Messenia – Greece.
Kardamyli is a seaside village located in the Mani, a stunning region in the southern Peloponnese. In the Iliad (Book 9), Homer cites Kardamyli as one of the seven cities offered by Agamemnon to Achilles as a condition to rejoin the fight during the Trojan War. The village preserves its ancient name. The older town includes a medieval castle and the imposing church of Saint Spyridon. The skyline of Kardamyli, like many other Maniot towns and villages, is dominated by the distinctive regional architectural of the various towers built by scions of the Nikliani clans, the medieval aristocracy of the Mani. Kardamyli is the departure point of many mountain trails, some of which lead to the peak of Mount Taygetus. Nearby is the Viros Gorge, with a total length of 20 km.
