Messinia - Greece


Messinia is an area of Greece often missed by tourists. At the South West corner of the Peloponnese, it has the benefit of being away from the normal tourist haunts. Itís a place where you can enjoy the history and culture of the nation without having to share it with the throng. A place to relax, eat and explore the best of what Greece has to offer without the crowds.

Rich in history, the region offers a treasury of archaeological, artistic and historical sites, as well as having some of the countries most pristine (and quiet) beaches.

There is much to explore in the region. Kalamata is the capital of Messinia, a city well known across the world for its olives and figs. The museum and archaeological site at Nestorís Palace, for those interested in Homerian history, is the place where Telemachus, son of Odysseus was greeted by the king. Pylos, on the Western coast, is the site of a huge battle where the British, French and Russians destroyed the Turkish Fleet in 1827. Small fishing villages with wonderful local food, mountains worthy of scaling and scenery to admire all make up the region.

Messinia is recommended to those with a love of culture who want to get away from the more common tourist sites and take delight in seeing the country in its most charismatic.
