Overview

  Sparta is the capital of the county of Lacedaimona and the prefecture of Lacony with 14.000 inhabitants. It is situated in the north west of the prefecture, to the east of the mountain of Taigetos at an altitude of 210m. The modern city in a fertile area of the valley of Evrotas, was founded in the same spot as ancient Sparta by enactment of the first king Othon in 1834. Its street layout is exceptional with wide streets and spacious squares. The climate is Mediterranean and the average yearly temperature 17.4 degrees Celsius while average yearly rainfall, even present during summertime, is 817mm. Because of the particularity of the climate and the fertile territory, the economy is mostly self - supported. The region's farming and cattlerearing products are gathered and processed in the city's own industrial units. Famed for its glorious historical past, Sparta has exquisite tokens of civilization involving all periods of its long - lasting history. But as a modern urban centre the city is a developing cultural power expressing its multidimensional self through the organization and realization of a number of local events.
