Vatica centre, the extreme of continental Europe

Neapolis, or Vatica, is the second biggest municipality of Laconia and Europe's outer tip of land. It impresses the visitor with its infrastructure in accommodation and transportation means. Here, you find hotels and rooms to cater for all tastes, and the post is connected with Kythira (12 miles) and Antikythira. Its long tree-lined strip of land at the seafront is full of taverns, cafés and bars and, with good reason, makes for a popular destination for visitors.

Neapolis, the centre of the ancient area of Voion, is the base for sightseeing in the vicinity. Unique monuments, such as the Stone Forest in Agia Marina, close to the docks of Prophet Ilia, the natural beauty of which is one of its kind, lie in wait for the visitor who wants to explore and lay eyes on a-million-year history as it unravels on tree trunks and numerous fossilised seashells.

During your stay in Neapolis, you must visit Mesohori and Faraclo, with its breathtaking view, the Caves of Kastania, the monasteries of Cape Malea, which is dubbed the Little Holy Mount, the natural reserve of Lake Stoggili in Viglafia, the old castle, Saint Nicolaos and Kastani.
