Pleiades

Mystras, referred to as the 'wonder of the Morea', dates to 1249 and was built by the prince of Achaia, William of Villehardouin. It was conquered by the Byzantines, then subsequently occupied by both the Turks and the Venetians. In the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries, the site was the capital of the Byzantine Despotate of the Morea. The city was abandoned in 1832.
