Visit the two historical castles of Pylos and Methoni. Our tour guide will take you on an adventurous trip into the glorious past of the area. On a short hike around Methoni you have time to imagine and discuss historical facts and stories. With lunch in a traditional tavern we complete this tour.

Pylos has been inhabited since Neolithic times. It was a significant kingdom in Mycenaean Greece, with remains of the so-called “Palace of Nestor” excavated nearby, named after Nestor, the king of Pylos in Homer’s Iliad. In Classical times, the site was uninhabited, but became the site of the Battle of Pylos in 425 BC, during the Peloponnesian War. Don’t miss to visit the Venetian fortress of Pylos.

At the southern trip of the peninsula is the citadel of Methoni, where a massive bridge reaches the Bourdzi tower, which is built on an islet.
