Taygetos is a mountain range lying within the prefectures of Arcadia, Laconia and Messinia, with a 100 Km length from the center of Peloponnese to Cape Tenaro.
The name Taygetos is also used for the highest mountain of the range (or else called Profitis Elias, 2.400 m. altitude, highest in Peloponnese). The section that constitutes the backbone of the Mani Peninsula is known as Sagias. The mountain is a very popular hiking destination in Greece and it constitutes part of the European walking route E4.
