It is located at an altitude of 650 meters, and has a population of about 100. The village was the seat of the municipality until it was merged into Sparta in 2011. The village is situated on top of Mount Vresthena (1,099 m), which gives its name to the settlement. It lies near the source for two rivers: one flowing towards Sparti and another towards Amyndeo (Αμύντεο). The area around Vresthena consists mainly outcrops from limestone formations with some pine trees growing among them; there are also olive groves nearby that have been cultivated since antiquity by locals who lived here before World War II. There are several caves in this region that were used as shelters during times when bandits roamed these mountains; they provided shelter to people such as Ioannis Varvakis during his exile years after he killed a Turkish soldier who had attempted to rape him while he was working on his farmlands.
