Arkadia

" I preferred to look at the mountain, which said nothing and never made me feel alone..."

Arkadia

Arcadia (Greek: Αρκαδία - Arkadía) is one of the Greek provinces. It is part of the administrative district of Peloponnese.
It is situated in the central and eastern part of the Peloponnese peninsula. It takes its name from the mythological character Arcas. In Greek mythology, it was the home of the god Pan. In European Renaissance arts, Arcadia was celebrated as an unspoiled, harmonious wilderness. Arcadia has its present-day capital at Tripoli and it covers about 18% of the Peloponnese peninsula, making it the largest peripheral unit on the peninsula.
