PLACES TOWNS The towns closest to Ancient Phigaleia are Nea Figalia on the road from the sea, Kopanaki to the south of the Neda gorge and Andritsaina, a mountain town on the northern edge of pARKadia. Further afield are Megalopolis, a big town with a rich history and Diavolitsi, a smaller town with once elegant shops. However, seaside towns like Kyparissia and Kalamata are not very far away. Towns should not be judged on first impressions. Beyond the main street, on roads best explored on foot, you will find poignant reminders of bygone times and, in Zacharo, a 40 kilometre beach with endless sand and sparkling water.
