Vamvakou is a small mountain village in Laconia with few inhabitants, which is currently being reborn; a dream-like place which invites you to get to know it!
A group of young people wanted to write a new chapter in the story of the village, aspiring to breathe new life into it.
Do dreams come true? If we believe in them, yes, they do! Vamvakou Revival with the support of Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF).
