Photographer's Note

In the heart of Sagias, the mountain that runs all the way down the peninsula of Mani, until it reaches the "end of the world", the "gate of Hades", Cape Tainaron ("Akrotainaro"), you can find a small group of 3 villages, Moundanistika, Leontakis (the one in the photo) and Pepo. Surrounded by the arid mountains of Mani, are among the most beautiful of the region, but almost completely abandoned. Located between the two sides of Mani, the "Aposkieri" ("Shadowed"=West) and "Prosiliaki" ("towards the sun"= "East"), they look like the don't belong nowhere. Do they belong to oblivion? I hope not!
