Arcadia

The scenic and versatile prefecture of Arcadia is located in the heart of the Peloponnese, reaching to the sea with its southeastern end.

Arcadia is a mountainous land of rivers, running streams, deep gorges, Frankish forts, Byzantine churches and monasteries, traditional villages and ancient cities, amazing geological features and a modern sinter centre. The climate varies with the landscape, being mild along the coast, with frequent snow and rain in the mountainous middle part during the winter.

The maintains Mainalo, Paron, Skiatho and Saita have a major effect on the prefecture's topography, allowing for many variations in scenery. Shady forests of pine, chestnut and fir trees merge into gently rolling fields and grazing pasture. Olive and fruit orchards melt into sandy beaches or abruptly change to precipitous cliffs.

Visitors can enjoy swimming and sunbathing at the beaches of Aghios Andreas, Astros, Atsigganos, Leonidio, tyros, Sambatiki and at the hot springs of Loutra Heraias. An unspoiled land, little known, full of surprises and truly bewitching, Arcadia is a natural wonderland whose mountain dwellers have preserves it intact and virtually unchanged since antiquity.
