Other Site Characteristics

Oros Taigetos is a mountain range including the highest peaks of Peloponnisos (2407 m). Geologically, it is a continuation of the Gavrovo-Tripoli zone composed of phyllites, plated limestones and flysch. Together with mountain range of Parnonas it is the oldest area of Peloponnissos. Its length is about 40 km and its southern limits touch Mt. Sangias while the northern one is the Langada gorge. The forest present on the mountain is mainly composed of Pinus nigra ssp. pallasiana and the Greek fir Abies cephalonica.The area of Langada Trypis is a gorge of c.13 km in length. It consists of a large area of rocky ecosystems, but in the area forest of Abies cephalonica and Pinus nigra ssp. pallasiana prosper well. The area is located at the northerd edge of Mt. Taigetos. It includes part of the valley of Alagonia and is the only natural path to cross the Taigetos mountain range from Sparti to Kalamata. It is a well isolated area.

4.2 Quality and importance

This is an important site for breeding raptors and species associated with open montane habitats. Mt.Taigetos includes a large variety of biotopes offering shelter in many Greek endemic plant taxa, some out of these being locally endemic to Taigetos. The low altitude gorges at the peripheral of the mountain are of great importance for birds of prey.
