Kosmas (Arkadia, Peloponnese)
Kosmas, Arcadia
@Kosmas is a picturesque village in Parnonas mountais. It is situated on the road between Leondion and Sparti and many Greek tourists stop here for a coffee and tradtional sweet or a hearty meal. Even when we visited it in March, surprisingly many tavernas and shops for tourists were open for business.

  The name of the village derives from Sts. Kosmas and Damianos but "Agios (Saint)" is strangely omitted.

The most of the tavernas, as you can imagine, sell meat dishes. Here is boiled goat soup which is best in colder seasons
