Methoni Messinia

Where the land meets the sea, at the remote southwestern corner of the Peloponnese, where nostalgic memories of former glory haunt the once bustling medieval fortress town of Methoni.

There is plenty to catch the visitor's eye; the splendid Methoni fortress, arguably the most important medieval military architecture monument in Greece; noble traditional mansions; the picturesque Methoni hamlet facing the blue Ionian sea with the rocky island outcrops of the Messinian Oinousses at its doorstep.
