Lakonia VacationTravel to the Prefecture of Lakonia! Lakonia (or even Laconia) occupies the southernmost part of the Peloponnese. It borders to the Prefectures of Arcadia to the north and Messinia to the west. The Myrtoan Sea, the Laconian Gulf and the Mediterranean Sea embrace the Laconian territory from the east and south. Cape Malea and Cape Tainaron extend deep into the Mediterranean waters. Mt. Taygetos (2,407 m) in the west and the Parnon (1,961 m) in the northeast form an imposing surrounding. Mt. Taygetos is the highest mountain in the whole of the Peloponnese, covered with pine trees and with snow during the cold months of the year. Its ecology is very interesting and very important, for details please click Here to be shown to our relevant article. The people of Lakonia make their living on Agriculture, Animal husbandry and Services, mainly Tourism.
