Today is going to be a short photo post dedicated to Gýtheio, a lively little port town, and gateway to the Máni peninsular.
It’s said to be one of the most attractive towns in the southern Peloponnese. I wouldn’t disagree.
The pastel coloured 19th Century buildings lining the waterfront are very elegant.
The drying octopus tentacles………..aren’t.
But let me take you behind the scenes through the labyrinth of alleyways lining the hillside behind the seafront.
Derelict manor houses nodding to former wealth.
Will they ever be restored?
Crumbling houses further up the hillside.
The old and the new side by side.
Pretty painted steps.
Colour co-ordinated balconies.
The odd building plot.
Washing drying in the sunshine.
A lovely terrace filled with plants.
Driving along the narrow causeway from our overnight parking spot on the small island of Kranai. Onwards then to the Máni peninsular.
I said it would be short!
