Best things to do in Kalamata

Schloss
“Dominating the city, the Castle of Kalamata (or kastro) sits on a lush pine-covered hill. Geoffroi de Villehardouin, a Frank knight who conquered Achaea, constructed the structure in 1208. It boasts an impressive gate, and though dating from the 13th century, it miraculously survived the 1986 earthquake, responsible for the destruction of a major part of the city. A little haven of peace and serenity, the kastro is the best place to enjoy the sunset from a beautiful vantage point.”

“Set in the historical heart of Kalamata, where the old market used to stand, the Archaeological Museum of Messenia is home to an extensive collection of archaeological finds dating back from prehistoric times to the Byzantine era. It is divided into four geographical areas, which represent the four provinces of Messenia, including Kalamata, Messene, Pylia, and Trifylia. Exhibits include the splendid mosaic from Koroni, which depicts various scenes of the worship of the god Bacchus.”

Kirche
“In the centre of the Messenian capital, at 23rd of March Square, the Temple of Saint Apostles is of great historical importance. Built during the Byzantine period, the temple has found a place in history, since it was there on the 23rd of March 1821 where the doxology for the liberation of Kalamata took place. At this first doxology, in a free territory, Th. Kolokotronis, P. Mavromichalis, Papaflessas, Nikitaras and other warriors of the Greek Revolution were present. The church was built in the beginning of the 14th century by Emperor Andronikos. It was of smaller size at first, but it is considered that subsequently it was extended. The temple had to be restored, after the damages because of the strong earthquakes in 1892 and 1986. Currently, it belongs to the Holy Metropolis of Messenia and every year on the 23rd of March a doxology takes place in honor of the heroes of 1821. The customs also include the re-enactments of the liberation of the city, before the parade. ”

Modern Greek Restaurant
“If you are craving Greek food but with a twist, Oinopantopōleion is the answer. Forget typical dishes and get ready to discover local ingredients combined to produce flavorful dishes. You can pair them with a bottle from the fantastic wine list and enjoy a relaxing dining experience. And if you end up falling in love with one of the locally sourced ingredients from your dish, you can go home with a package of pasta, nuts, a jar of jam or honey or grab a bottle of olive oil, vinegar, wine and even ouzo and Tsipouro. ”

You will find traditional dishes, though somewhat refined and revisited with newfound flavours. You will surely have a nice time dining (or lunching) here.”
