  • The entire fortification extends over the tip of Methoni, in a strategic position on the sea. Open from 8 a.m. till 20, recommended if it's hot as when we were there in the morning or late afternoon. You pay a € 2 ticket. Upon entering the front door, after a bridge, you enter the area big enough of fortification, staple of Venice in Greece, port used in the middle ages on the journey to the Holy land. A nice walk inside where there are many facilities to be restored. admiring beautiful landscapes until arriving at the bottom where there is a double fortification and arrive at the Bourtzi, the octagonal tower that reaches out into the sea, with a beautiful glance, gorgeous. An amazing place to visit and admire the night from the beach.

  • What a lovely castle, the fort at the end was just stunning. If you get the chance eat in the little restaurant just outside the walls on the seafront, the fish is amazing.
  • Superb place! Really great castle and well maintained still. I admire it's sea canals and how big it was.
  • Very well preserved walls and some towers. It is an impressive example of venetian occupation. A must see.
  • Even if it is rather abandoned and nature has taken over, the castle is still very beautiful and worth visiting.
  • Worth a visit
