Leontari (Greek: Λεοντάρι) is a village and a community in the southwestern part of Arcadia, Greece, seat of the former municipality of Falaisia. It is situated on a hillside, 6 km east of Paradeisia, 9 km northwest of Kamara and 9 km south of Megalopoli. The community consists of the villages Leontari (population 289 in 2001), Gavria (pop. 10), Kalyvia (pop. 24), Kamaritsa (pop. 24) and Kotsiridi (pop. 37). Leontari has several monuments from the Byzantine era, including the richly decorated 14th century Church of the Holy Apostles.[2] The area suffered damage from the 2007 Greek forest fires.
