Visit the historical greenery and picturesque area of Pylia, the “other figure (Peninsula)”

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.

Our lunch stop at the exotic Finikounda. Finikounda does not have many palm-trees, but hides in its bosom the most enchanting beaches of Messinia. These sandy beaches have made this small coastal fishing village a popular summer holiday resort. The village was established 150 years ago by fishermen from Crete and is literally built on the sand!

Koroni is also called “The Lady of the South”. A lovely authentic village where fishing and farming dominate daily life. Without a visit to the old castle and the monastery, your visit to Koroni will not be complete. A unique piece of history is right at your feet and will tell you lot’s about Koroni’s history.
