Summary note:
Mystras, the Byzantine castle-city, was built on a foothill of Mt. Taygetus and flourished during the last two centuries of the Byzantine Empire (13th-15th A.D.). Here art and natural beauty meet and history casts its spell over the ruined castles, magnificent palaces and noble mansions, while on the frescoed walls of the seven churches the finest pictorial expression of Paleologan art unfolds and mingles with the art of East and West.
