Areopolis

Prefectural Administration of Lakonia

Areopolis is the seat of the Municipality of Oitylos, and lies 72 km from Sparta. It stands in the centre of Mani, at an altitude of 250 m, with the gulf of Messenia to its west. This place played an important role during the 1821 War of Independence. The revolution of 17 March broke out in its paved square. In this village, in addition to the historic 17 March 1821 Square, we can admire the paved lanes, stone houses, the church of the Taxiarches, also the Metropolitan church of Areopolis with its impressive multi-storey belfry, and the old Maniot towers built by the village’s celebrated families.
