A first comprehensive overview of the Western Mani is given in a travel guide published by the municipality. Beaches, villages, churches and monasteries, flora and fauna, culture and history are presented.
A good overview and a great opportunity to get to know the Mani at home and to prepare your trip.
John Chapman’s “Mani – Guide and History” is even more comprehensive and particularly intensively researched, with a focus on history. Even if not quite up to date anymore, it is still a jewel among Mani guides with impressive pictures, in English language.
