A taste of history. The name Peloponnese (also known as Peloponisos) comes from the mythological hero Pelops and "nisos" (the Greek word for island)... so it was named "the island of Pelops"!
Stomio beach in Peloponnese, closed to Kyparissia (A beautiful town in the centre of Kyparissian Gulf.
Stomio beach with its clear waters.
The old castle in Kyparissia.

Kyparissia is known not only for its wonderful sunset.

Impressive red rocks rise above Leonidio village in Peloponnese.
A nice view of Trihonida Lake, Peloponnese.

Lefkada is one of the renowned 'Eptanissa' islands, the seven islands of the Ionian Sea.

Lefkada took its name from the white colour (lefko in Greek) of the rocks in cape Lefkatas.
Gira beach, the biggest one in Lefkada island.
It's a sandy beach with wonderful coloured water.
A paradise for those who love kite surfing.

The city of Nafpaktos in Peloponesse (one of the oldest towns in Greece with history of 3.500 years). In the background you can see the bridge of Rio-Antirio.
