Vitina (Arkadia, Peloponnese)
The village of Vitina is standing on the high plateau
of 1040m. All the photos here are dark, because we arrived in the early
evening of winter day.
In the photo above is the central square and the main church of the
village. In the photo left is the Folklore Museum also in the square.
Bronze statue of Mathios Potagas, 17 year old youth killed by German
soldiers during the World War II.
In central Peloponnese, we encounter always a monument or statue dedicated
the victims of Nazi Germany almost in every village.
Shop selling local produce.
Menu of local taverna. There are game dishes unfamiliar in Athens.
To our regret, we had just eaten in Stemnitsa and could not have any more
food. So we had a handmade portokalopita (orange cake) in a cafeteria.
