Greece -- Mystras and Sparta

Mystras - 14th century (late Byzantine) cathedrals and monestary

Mystras is on a mountainside, above modern Sparta. The walking path was challanging, consisting largely of quite uneven steps. The reward was seeing the many remarkable partially preserved frescos in the churches.
