The inner Mani peninsula is a wind-swept, mountainous and relatively unpopulated area on the southwestern part of the Peloponnese. It is noted for its independent people, dramatic scenery, hundreds of standing stone Maniot towers (some dating to the 17th century), and chapels dating from the 12th century.

We visited in late March 2008. It was generally clear but extremely windy. Our visit also fell over the Greek Independence Day holiday. We saw lots of flags, but little other activity.
