The water mills of Talanta
30 minutes’ drive southwest of Monemvasia, at the picturesque village of ‘Talanta’ with its mountain gorge known as ‘The Balli Gorge’ hidden amongst the forest trees of walnut, chestnut and oak, runs a gurgling stream that still serves its traditional purpose of giving life to as a fully functioning flourmill. During its heyday Talanta housed no less than 11 active flour mills in this area alone. The last surviving mill now gives testimony to its heritage, uniting past tradition with today’s growing demand for genuine home grown, freshly milled flour of exceptional quality; also sold on location. The mill is open to the public every Sunday from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. in the early afternoon. For further information you may call the mobile nr. GR 6974 738 353.
