Mani Region Wedding Venues
At the southernmost tip of Greece, and that of continental Europe, Mani peninsula, part of the Laconia district of Peloponnese, proudly stands along the centuries. This authentic part of Greece with a long history and proud inhabitants that is loved when discovered, creates faithful visitors and friends who cherish the fact that here, you can reunite with history, with nature and your inner self.
Mani, with its impressive natural settings and many hidden treasures to discover, is a revelation! After a walk through the narrow cobble streets of the villages, passing old stone towers that stand ferociously -as though pirates and invaders are approaching-, the visitor feels at home, as if that place was always familiar, as familiar as our human experience. Because Maniots have managed to build towns and villages so much in sync with the environment, they seem to be emerging from the land itself. Using only what little they could find, the locals achieved a harmony through this raw beauty that can be both exciting and relaxing, a true revelation that never ceases to amaze the visitors.
Mani peninsula proudly belongs to Natura 2000 protected network as well as to Corine biotope program. Its geological wealth that varies from pine forests to rocky soil thin vegetation of low brushwood and olive cultivations, creates an environment rich in biodiversity. A very important area for a great number -more than 120 species- of migrant birds as well as rare, endangered predatory birds find refuge in the wild Manian nature, placing Mani in the list of Important Areas for the Birds of Greece. With more than 600 plant species –many of them native- and many indigenous as well as non-native animals, among which are, the rare Chamaeleo chamaeleon and the Monachus Monachus seal; the abundant biodiversity of Mani is a part of the area’s mythic charm, inextricably linked with the quality of Manian cultural legacy.
This famous pure and wild Mani, is a pluralistic puzzle of pictures and habits, from impressive Taygetos to the lace looking coastlines and bays; from the monumental Towers and Castles to the stone-built traditional villages; from ancient ruins and temples to significant byzantine churches… The serene seascape of Limeni, the charming Areopoli, the impressive Diros Caves, Oitilo, Gerolimenas, Vatheia or Cape Tainaron, are only some of the peninsula’s treasures that will you enjoy discovering. Mani villages include Stoupa, Lagada, Tseria, Kastania, Limeni, Gythion, Vathia, Kotronas, and Gerolimenas. All the houses, museums, and public buildings in these villages follow the local traditional architecture to perfectly blend with the environment and the landscape of Lakonia in southern Peloponnese. Speckled with stone towers, Mani has some of the most dramatic and varied scenery in the Peloponnese.
