Routes – sightseeing

Arcadia got its name from Arkas, a mythological character.
  • Arcadia combines sea and mountain.

A typical route is the more than 60 km road, by the sea starting from Xiropigado ending to the  picturesque Plaka Leonidiou.

Furthermore, the paths through the lush forests of Gortynia can satisfy even the most demanding visitor.

Arcadia has many monasteries which are visited by the pilgrims throughout the year. It’s worth visiting the museums (Archaeological Museum of Astros – Dimitsanas Water Power Museum) and the many castles that are in various villages in Arcadia.
