"Geraneia mountains, are one of the most outstanding mountain ranges of Peloponesse,
embraced by three gulfs - the Saronian Gulf, the Corinthian Gulf and the Gulf of Alkyonides"
"The mountain forms a 37 km long natural barrier between Central Greece and Peloponnese"
"From Makriplagi, the highest peak of Geraneia - 1.369m - the view is absolutely awesome!"
