Photographer's Note

This is a view from Prastós showing the ancient and historic mansions and a part of the basilica of Ayios Dimitrios built in 17th century
This village is where my mother was born and every time I visit, I carry fond memories from all the times that we´ve spent there together, walking in the little streets and remembering all what she taught me about the history and the great tradition of Prastós..
She was very proud of her birthplace and I am also very proud of knowing where I came from.
A place with a great heritage and a priceless culture including its dialect and its significance in history.
This church is a jewel with its dome and its exquisite wall paintings with religious themes.
Prastós was the ancient and historical capital of Tsakoniá since the Middle Age years, very rich, very prosperous with the most important traces of nobility!!
Every summer Prastós is filled with visitors who come here to enjoy the many festivals and the cool climate that is very favorite due to the high elevation.
I like to visit during the spring with much less people so I can enjoy going back through my memory lane totally uninterrupted...
