The historic Varvitsa is built at an altitude of 1,060 m. on the west side of the hill "Meterizi" of Parnonas.
It is one of the oldest villages in the area, with stone houses, traditional color and rich vegetation.

Varvitsa is the birthplace of the legendary Captain Zacharias Barbitsiotis, the pre-revolutionary hero of the great uprising of 1821 against the Turks. At the square of the village, where the statue of the great hero is located, you can relax under the tall plane trees, have a coffee and enjoy the wonderful view of Taygetos.
