The Archaeological Site of Mystras is an unusual and interesting UNESCO World Heritage Site in Greece. Unlike most sites in Greece, it isn't particularly ancient! It's a ruined castle and fortress complex dating to the 13th century, when it was founded by Franks returning from the Fourth Crusade. Having taken hold of the area, they constructed fortifications, but didn't manage to hold them for long.
