The Mani Peninsula is a difficult area to explore due to the mountainous landscape. One of the options to try to see the whole thing, even from a distance, is the mountain of the prophet Elijah. From above, you can enjoy breathtaking views of the amazing mountain scenery. In good weather, in the morning hours, you can even see Kalamata, which is tens of kilometers away. The сhurch itself, of course, is not visually interesting and looks like an optional addition to the actual observation deck. The road is not easy, and it is better for an unprepared person to use a car.

The road is not for the faint of heart, and once you chose to go up, there is no turning back except at the chapel. But the view.....outstanding. The chapel is beautifully maintained and you feel the richness of the decor.

The views from Profitis Ilias Church is amazing and well worth the winding road up. Go in the morning if the weather is clear for the best views and take your camera.
