Where: Mystras, Peloponnese - Greece
Situated on Mount Taygetos, near ancient Sparta, Mystras is a fortified Byzantine castle-town in Greece’s most southern region of the Peloponnese. Declared a UNESCO World Heritage Monument, it is an excellently preserved example of a medieval walled town in Greece. Historically important during the Fourth Crusade in 1204, Mystras later evolved into an important center for the Byzantine Empire, second to Constantinople. Byzantine art and literature flourished here from the 13th to 15th centuries and some of the frescoes in Mystras represent the peak that Byzantine religious painting reached. Inhabited throughout the Ottoman conquests beginning in the mid-15th century, today Mystras is a ghost city that fascinates visitors with its castle, palatial complex, churches, private homes and mansions.
Nestled in the heart of the Peloponnese at the foothills of mystical Mount Taygetus, the Euphoria Retreat is the perfect place to relax, and redefine the relationship between your mind and body. Your experience at this hotel will be completely infused with innovative and rejuvenating holistic treatments, as well as nutritionally balanced meals.
It was 6:30 am on June 6th 1944, when the first troops landed on the beaches of Normandy instigating the largest seaborne invasion in history as well as marking the beginning of the liberation of Europe. Across the beaches of Normandy, on the waters of the English Channel, over the skies of France, and throughout the occupied French inland, countless young men from over twelve countries lay down their lives for the ideals and beliefs of freedom and liberty. 2019 will mark 75 years from that momentous day, and will be commemorated with highest respects to honor the thousands of young men that forever wrote their names in the annals of history. Join us in Normandy and participate in the celebrations with military parades, memorial services, airdrops, picnics, concerts and military re-enactments.
