Day Trips and the Methoni Castle

Built in the 13th century by the Venetians, the Methoni Castle is a strategic fortress and one of the largest well preserved castles in the Mediterranean.  For a very nominal entrance fee, one can easily spend several hours tracing and reliving the ancient wonders of a fortress community.   Day Trips to nearby coastal towns like Pylos and Finikounda is a must as each town has their own picturesque charm and beauty.
