The Highlights of the Peloponnese
The Peloponnese is a peninsula in southern Greece. This is connected to the continent through the Isthmus of Corinth, which is crossed by the Corinth Canal. Its name means "Island of Pelops" and goes back to the myth according to which this Greek mythological hero would have conquered the entire region.
The Peloponnese is made up of five peripheral units: Corinthia, Laconia, Mesenia, Arcadia and Argolis, and administratively they also belong to the Peloponnese Achaia and Elis, although territorially they are part of the periphery of Western Greece.
This peninsula is characterized by having a very mountainous relief, since it is an extension of the Pindus mountain range. That is why it has several massifs with very high peaks, the highest being Taygetus, which is over two thousand four hundred meters high.
In the Peloponnese is the most important religious center of antiquity - Olympia. The Olympic Games were held there for the first time. At present Olympia is a very interesting archaeological site where you can learn about the culture of the ancient Greeks.
Also, you can find there the fabulous city of Sparta, one of the most important polis of ancient Greece.

A dish that we recommend you try if you visit this peninsula is Gyros, a recipe in which lamb or pork is marinated for 12 hours with lemon juice, spices and vegetables and then roasted over low heat to later place it in a Pita bread along with a salad.
Likewise, we invite you to try Fasolada, a soup made from beans and vegetables with olive oil and sea salt.
And for dessert, don't miss the amazing Greek yogurt, and if possible accompany it with honey and fruit, a masterpiece that cannot be anything other than a gift from the gods.
