  • Went on a windy day with lots of waves crashing on the castle and it was amazing! On a cold day though I suppose it would get extremely windy and cold  more »
  • The famous Castle built in 1209 by the Venetians. In his place, according to the prevailing opinion prior to the ancient Greek Pedasus. In the years the Romans and Byzantines was already a major port and commercial center, and had fortified but not in the form we see today. The Venetians began the fortification of the Castle after the 1209 with strong walls and moat. The famous Bourtzi started to be built by the Venetians but completed by the Ottomans. Great extent. Essential to have water and a hat, while better to prefer morning or afternoon hours. Please allow approximately 2 hours to enjoy it as intended and have cared for enough space for photos on your machine. The entrance fee is pamfthini. Wonderful!

  • This place is bigger that it looks. My kids were a bit tired from travelling most of the day but enjoyed the lighthouse the most. It has spectacular views, especially at sunset.  more »

  • Nice location.
  • Always closed
  • The castle of Methoni in the Peloponnese is a Venetian fortress, and probably the largest. The Castle offers beautiful views of the village and the small fishing port of Methoni. Many buildings are visible and the fortress wall is well secured. The plant is very clean and is lovingly maintained. The admission is free.
