This is Sparta!

Sparta doesn’t really have any monuments that can match the splendour of the Parthenon or any of Athens’ other wonders, but it’s situated in an absolutely stunning valley covered by olive groves. Here’s a couple of photos of the Menelaion and the Taygetos mountain. Oh, and I’d like to apologize for this entry’s headline….I couldn’t resist.
