Tyros Greece is a beautiful traditional town with strong cultural heritage. Tyros Arkadias is located in the most fantastic beach of eastern Peloponnese, in the heart of “Tsakonia”. Tyros Arkadias is one of the remaining eight villages in Greece that still use the Tsakonian language, one of the oldest Doric dialects! The Tsakonians played a key role in Byzantium as elite guards with responsibility to secure the forts; Byzantine writers often mention them in their writings. Pride and hospitality were fundamental values of the Tsakonians throughout history.One of most traditional customs of Tsakonians is the “Tsakonic dance”; it is believed to be the only kind of historical music in Greece that has survived until today, as it was a sacred worship dance. This dance depicts the effort of Theseus to find his way out of the labyrinth of Knossos and escape from the mythic Minotaur. The Tsakonic dance is always performed wearing the traditional Tsakonic outfit.
