A castle with a rich history on a pine-covered rocky hill at the NW side of the city of Kalamata. An ancient acropolis existed on the hill before the Trojan war, and later a Byzantine fortress, but the ruins we observe today are the remains of the castle that was (re)built there in 1208 by Gulielme Villearduin , during the Frankish occupation. It has inspired Angelos Terzakis’s novel about Princess Izampo who had lived in the area. At the foot of the castle there is the semi-cavernous temple of Saint John that has probably existed since the post-Byzantine years. It is said that the citadel of ancient Pharai was situated below the castle. In the nunnery of Saints Constantine and Helen', built beside the castle in the 18th century, you will also learn about the ongoing Byzantine tradition of weaving pure silk on “lakkoi” (looms).

Messini (or Messene) is a significant ancient city in terms of its size, form, and state of preservation, and still has much to offer. It possesses not only sanctuaries and public buildings, but also imposing fortifications, and houses and tombs. It enjoys, amongst other things, the advantage of never having been destroyed or covered by later settlements, and is located on an unspoiled inland site. Its natural setting combines the grandeur of the mountains of Delphi with the low-lying, riverine tranquillity of Olympia, the dominating bare limestone mass of Ithome, the site of the ancient acropolis, with the low fertile valley around the ancient city.

Kardamyli(36km) is charming, with handsome houses and several tavernas. It has always had a reputation as being on the bohemian side, giving it a different atmosphere to Stoupa and Agios Nikolaos. Shops, cafes and tavernas flank the high street and there are other places to eat and drink off the main street towards the sea. At the southern end of the town is a rough road that takes you down into the harbour. It is extremely picturesque and the harbour jetty has what used to be a fortified customs house and a small church built on it. The chimney that dominates the skyline was once a factory producing olive soap. No visit to Kardamyli is complete without a visit to the Troupakis fortified complex and museum located in the old town, just a few minutes walk from the high street.
