Veligosti

University of Peloponnisos

Veligosti is a small village of the Municipality of Falaisia located in a beautiful natural environment. Only few traces testify the important past of the region, since Veligosti was founded by the Byzantines and during the conquest of the Peloponnese by the Franks it became one of the strongest baronies of Morias. It is believed that Geoffrey I Villeardouin established the barony which had Veligosti as a basis and 4 feuds. First Baron was Matthaios Monis. The Franks also renovated the Byzantine castle that was in the area. Veligosti was destroyed around1300. Today there are some remains of the Byzantine settlement and the aqueduct. The exact location of the castle of Veligosti is not known, but suspected to be at the location of the current village.
