Points of interest in Arcadia

Our visitors have a plethora of other options to complement their wine tasting experience, within a close range or slightly further away. During these wanderings in the Arcadian land, one can drive through scenic landscapes, both mountainous and coastal.


About five kilometers from Ktima Tselepos, one can visit the jewel of our area, the Tegea Museum. Being one of only 3 interactive, modern museums in Greece, it has also received the highest recognition for outstanding achievements awarded by the European Museum Forum Jury.

The museum presents the story of the birth and evolution of Tegea, which was the strongest ancient Arcadian city.

The centre of Tegea used to be the sanctuary of Athena Alea, built in the 4th century BC, a work of Skopa. It was the second largest temple of ancient Peloponnese after the Temple of Olympian Zeus in ancient Olympia.


Within a short distance from Ktima Tselepos, the mountainous, stone-built, picturesque village of Doliana can be found.

A historic village, mainly since the revolution of 1821, built amphitheatrically, it is characterized as a traditional settlement and has a magnificent view of the Mantinia plateau.


In the center of Arcadia, amidst dense fir forest, the Mainalo Ski Resort predominates, at an altitude of 1,600 meters and with easy access, enabling visitors to enjoy winter sports.


Heading towards Gortynia, about 45 kilometers away from Tripoli, one comes across a lively picturesque town, situated in a small valley at the foot of Mount Mainalon, at an altitude of approximately 1,033 m. The beautiful natural scenery, the traditional colorful, stone-built houses in combination with the local dishes and products make Vitina one of the most popular winter destinations of Peloponnese.


Following the road after Vitina, on the gorge of river Lucius, awaits the historic village of Dimitsana. Stone houses and towers untouched for centuries from human intervention are the dominant features in the area.

Points of interest for the visitors include the Water Museum, the famous Dimitsana Library and the extraordinary historic monasteries, such as the Philosopher’s Monastery (963 A.D.) also known as the “secret school” of Prodromos monastery as well as the monastery of Aymiales (16th century AD).
