Photographer's Note

from Wikipedia:
Areopoli (Greek: Αρεόπολη) is the second-largest town in Mani. The word areopoli means "city of Ares", the ancient Greek god of war. It is the seat of Oitylo municipality as well as Oitylo Province. However, Areopoli was not always the name of the city. Tsimova was Areopoli's first name. The Greek War of Independence was started at Areopoli on the 17th of March 1821 by Petros Mavromichalis, the bey of Mani. Now Areopoli has grown into a flourishing town. Limeni is her port.
