The lads from Tripolitsa

Tripoli, formerly known as Tripolitsa or Dropolitsa, is the largest city and capital of the Prefecture of Arcadia. It is built on a plateau at an altitude of 660 meters. Its population is 30,090 inhabitants, while the population of the homonymous Municipality is 47,457 inhabitants. Tripoli is a modern city with strong building development in recent years and is constantly expanding. It is also the seat of the Peloponnese Region.

Service in the mountain of Panos

The ski center on the mountain of Mainalo, the mountain of God Pan, the  protector of stockbreeders, hunters, fishermen and shepherds with permanent residence in nature. The mountain range of Mainalo occupies the center of the Peloponnese and a large part of the Prefecture of Arcadia. It stretches from the plateau of Tripoli to the river Lucio in the west and from Megalopolis to the lake of Ladonas in the north, in an area of about 1,000,000 acres. The continuous alternation of dozens of peaks and ravines with hundreds of mountain meadows and plateaus, give an impressive relief. More than 50 peaks exceed 1500 m., Among which dominate Ostrakina 1982 m., Maple 1882 m., Gelati 1870 m. And Aintinis 1849 m. The whole area is a vast cultural park, with remnants of ancient , medieval but also newer traditional settlements, temples, monasteries, stone bridges, watermills, cobblestones and paths. A simple tour of the mountain, recalls historical memories from our ancestor Arkadas to the Kolokotronian liberators, when Mainalo was the cradle of the Greek Nation Revolution.
