Photographer's Note

Kardamili is a village by the sea, located in Messinian Mani, 35km south of Kalamata and has been an inhabited and active area for more than 3000 years. It is a charming place with history that still keeps its pre-Homeric name and is mentioned by Homer as one of the “seven well-governed and of good name cities” that Agamemnon would offer to Achilles as dowry in case he married one of his daughters.

Kardamili today is a touristic bathing-resort with many sightseeings appreciated both by Greeks and foreigners.

It is the capital of the municipality of Lefktron and has a population of 574 inhabitants (census of 1991) that grows much bigger during the summer months due to the considerable touristic development/activity.

Kardamili has excellent touristic infrastructure for accommodation and recreation and in its central market one can find goods of every kind. Kardamili is also ideal for hiking, since Vyros ravine’s entrance is there and through its marked footpaths one can be led to marvelous Byzantine churches.
