THE FOREST OF VASSILIKI
The forest of Vassiliki is a small treasure for hiking lovers and not only. You will find it isolated at the southern part of the Taygetus mountain, surrounded by summits, awaiting to immerse you in its secrets of nature and total peace. In this forest, which extends across approximately 2,750 acres, you will find mainly fir trees and black pine, with some pines being almost 300 years old! The forest of Vassiliki suffered great destruction during the Italian rule, when a devastating fire razed a great part of its expanse; gradually, however, it recovered without human intervention.
