The current Sparta was rebuilt in the 1830's by King Otto from Bavaria - he was a fan of Sparta - but it is a bustling 19th and 20th century town now without much reminders of the illustrious Spartans except a large statue of King Leonidas.

If you are in Sparta (20 minute drive from
here) it is advisable to visit Mystras first and then come here to spend the
entire afternoon…swim first and then go for some fish and ouzo.
Don’t miss visiting the Caves of Diros which is
another interesting place to visit ….only a 30 minute drive from here as well.
