The fame of Sparta stems from a quite short period. (431–404 BC, Peloponnesian war)
it maintained its political independence until the Roman conquest of Greece in 146 BC. It then underwent a long period of decline, especially in the Middle Ages, when many Spartans moved to live in Mystras*. Modern Sparta is the capital of the Greek regional unit of Laconia and a center for the processing of goods such as citrus and olives.
*Mystras is a nearby town, once fortified, it served as the capital of the Byzantine Despotate of the Morea in the 14th and 15th centuries.0
