“The castle of Methoni Built by the Venetians in the early 13th century on a rocky promontory, the castle is among the largest ones in the Mediterranean. You’ll be astonished at the bridge stone of 14 arches which connects the castle to the shore instead of the timber one that used to stand in its place before the Venetians ever got there. The celebrated symbol of Venice, the lion of St Marc, dominates the gate of the castle where immured reliefs, emblems, blazons, inscriptions, the huge gates –especially the main gate, above the moat – and the relics of two Ottoman bathhouses have survived. At the south edge of the castle a fortified islet floats. Bourtzi, as it is called, a prison and place of executions during the Turkish Occupation, was built in 1500 and is connected to the Sea Gate of the castle with a paved tiny road. Don’t forget to: Stroll in the scenic town of Methoni and marvel at the local well preserved architecture. Visit the built-in-the-rocks catacombs of St Onoufrios (2km N of Methoni) and the catholic monastery of St Leon. Swim at the beautiful beach by the castle, as well as at the beaches of Mavrovouni, Amenomylos, Loutsa and Akritika. Pay a visit to Sapientza Island, a significant wetland habitat nestling the kri kri wild sheep, birds etc in a protected forest with arbutus trees. A 19th century stone lighthouse and an exceptional sandy beach are no less of an attraction too.. Methoni is 21km SW of Kalamata, whereas Koroni is 52km to the same direction. Local buses will help you get there. Contact them at: www.ktelmessinias.gr”

“Messene is one of the most important cities of antiquity, and one which still has a great deal to offer. It boasts not only religious and public buildings, but also imposing fortifications, houses and funerary monuments. The city of Ancient Messene was founded in 369 BC by the Theban general Epaminondas . It became the capital of the free Messenian state following a long period -about four centuries- of occupation of the Messenian territory by the Spartans. Strong fortification walls with towers and gates are preserved along a course of 9.5 km, surrounding the city and Mt Ithome, where the sanctuaries of Zeus Ithomatas, Artemis Limnatis and Eileithyia stood. On the site of the city are preserved public and religious buildings, many of them reconstructed to a large degree.A plethora of statues, vessels and other moveable finds is on display at the nearby Archaeological Museum, testifying to the thriving society of Messene. ”

“Η Μεσσήνη ήταν αρχαία πόλη της Μεσσηνίας, στο νοτιοδυτικό τμήμα της Πελοποννήσου και βρίσκεται δίπλα στο σημερινό χωριό Μαυρομάτι που απέχει 30 km BΔ από την Καλαμάτα. Η Αρχαία Μεσσήνη διατηρεί ως σήμερα την αίγλη του παρελθόντος και θεωρείται από τις καλύτερα σωζόμενες πόλεις της αρχαίας Ελλάδας και είναι για τους επισκέπτες μια πραγματική αποκάλυψη.”
