Stemnitsa is one of the most beautiful villages of the mountain area of Arcadia, in the center of Peloponissos. Situated at an altitude of 1050m, it is built on the archaeological site of ancient Ypsous and was under the rule of the town of Gortynia.
Apart from the above Stemnitsa has been very active in the crafts of gold, silver and bronze, producing a series of high quality artifacts (jewelery, bells, guns, cutlery, etc.), that have been sold around Greece and abroad.
