Oreini Meligou

Under Construction

Oreini Meligou belongs to the Municipality of North Kynouria and is the residence of Meligous inhabitants during the summer months. The phenomenon occurs in several villages of Kynouria and thus, there are two settlements, Meligou and Oreini (mountainous) Meligou. Near the village is the desolate Monastery of Agia Triada. This monastery flourished in the 18th century but was abandoned during the 19th. The main church survives and although there are damages, beautiful murals can still be seen. On the way to Agios Ioannis, is the guardhouse of Spathokommenos. Next to this guard-house the ancient route which united Sparta with the ancient cities of Kynouria used to pass. Various archaeological findings have been brought to light in this area, mainly from classical and Hellenistic times.
