Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

It was a nice walk to see it but at the end of the day it was kinda underwelming. I both know and love the history behind him but honestly going to see his tomb is better Leonidas.

This statue of a Spartan warrior sits outside the present-day sports stadium. It gives the whole place some historic perspective.

Sparta is a relatively modern city, but one dominant image which is worth seeing is the statue of Leonidas, whose reputation largely rests on his role in the battle of Thermopylae, 480BC, when he led a diminutive force of Greeks against the overwhelming ranks of a huge Persian army Needless to say, Leonidas perished in this impossible task, and so has gone down in legend. The statue is suitably heroic and substantial, and it’s worth visiting in order to pay homage to a legendary Greek.

The statue. It's all. But there are few attractions in Sparta. So if you go by, take a look (and a photo).

... what ?! Wait, can that be it?! Are we at the right spot? ... guess so, the statue is there. Well that’s about it and if you stand close enough and blend out the surroundings... still no proper place for a hero :’(

Ancient Sparti (Sparta in the Doric dialect) was a city-state in Ancient Greece that has become known in world history for its military might, discipline and heroism. The military power of Sparta was due to the system of Education imposed by the legislation of Lycurgus, which was unique in ancient Greece. The history that took place in 480 BC is very well known. A small Spartan force led by King Leonidas fought a legendary battle to the last in Thermopylae against the huge Persian army, inflicting countless casualties before finally being betrayed by Efealtes and were all killed by the Persians. The story became a movie called "300" and starred Gerard Butler as Leonidas. We visit the modern city of Sparta as well as the interesting archeological site with the ancient theater and the wonderful view of the city and Taygetos.
