This reputed town combines sea, valley, and traditions. Mansions with courtyards, gardens surrounded by high fences, houses with symmetrically dyed windows and skylights, decorated courtyard doors, fine chimneys, and red tiled roofs make up the town. A visit to one of the mansions with the wooden floors and carved ceilings is certainly worthwile. The more walks around Leonidio, the more they feel they crossing picturesque town, where tradition comes to life at every step. This is the capital of Kynouria (Tsakonia) and the elderly still remember and speak the Tsakonese dialect.
