Greece 6- Mistral
Photos of the abandoned Byzantine city, situated above what was Sparta. On this trip we visited a number of world heritage sites, and this is one of them. We could have spent more time here--never did walk all the way up to the fortress on top. We did plenty of climbing, however. I enjoyed getting Dean Walck's comments. She is quite expert on Russian medieval history and thus knew a lot about Greek Orthodox iconography. I have no interior photos of the painted walls, because I have yet to remember correctly the directions for turning off my flash.
