09 MARCH 2021

The travel documentary series, “Street Art,” (Η Τέχνη του Δρόμου), which presents Greek cities and islands through the eyes of street artist Same84, visited Sparta and the wider region of Laconia.

The village of Vamvakou is featured among the imposing Mystras castle town, the beautiful neoclassical buildings in the town center, the Evrotas River, and the peaks of Mount Taygetos.

The Vamvakou Revival team discussed the project for the revival of the village, implemented with the exclusive support of the Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF), aiming to completely revitalize the village by drawing on the history, human capital, and natural wealth of the region. Enjoy the village’s picturesque alleys, main square and old houses, and the renovated school, which hosts V.Lab (fully powered by SNF), and discover a village that combines the past with the future, surrounded by the spectacular nature of Mount Parnon. The project for the Revival of Vamvakou is part of the Laconia Initiative.
