Stunning Laconian Mani: the southern-most tip of mainland Greece, EU

Mani is one of the most rugged parts of southern Greece

The eponymous Mani region of extreme southern Greece has long been considered what British author John Fowles once referred to as “Wild Greece”. The rugged and sparsely populated region is roughly divided between two prefectures, Messinia and Laconia, which in antiquity was the home of Sparta.
Laconian Mani, like its Messinian counterpart, combines traditional villages, many abandoned, along with an arid Mediterranean landscape, picturesque beaches, coves and tiny harbors.
Laconia Mani, in fact, is the southern-most tip of the mainland EU.
