Artist's Description

Click on the image to view larger

Gytheio is located in the north-east corner of Mani. It lies on the north-western end of the Laconian Gulf. Gytheio is built on hilly ground overlooking the Laconian Gulf. Offshore of Gytheio are several small islands, the most important of these being Cranae, which is connected to the mainland by a causeway. The terrain at the Mani Peninsula (Μάνη in Greek) is mountainous and inaccessible. Until recent years many Mani villages could be reached only by sea. Today a narrow and winding road extends along the west coast from Kalamata to Areopoli, then south to Akrotainaro (the pointy cape which is the most southward soil of continental Greece) before it turns north toward Gytheio.
