Vathia/Mani

Vathia is a deserted village of Mani in south Peloponnese near Sparta. Mani is a rugged place where its people were tough and terrific warriors that they never loosed their freedom through the centuries and never one dared to occupy their mountainous land. Their houses were built to serve as defence towers and their inhabitants were fighting from these strong holders. Now people deserted them for life is difficult in these places and people now like the easy life with plenty amenities.
