Methoni Castle: Guardian of the port
As soon as you set foot on the stone bridge with its 14 arches, flirting with the swell, you’ll be impressed by the castle and its imposing gate. A second and then a third gate lead you to the inside of the castle, where there was once a settlement. Among its remains is the pretty church, Transfiguration of the Saviour (Metamorphosis tou Sotiros), the Turkish Baths ( dating back to the 19th century), the house of Ibrahim Pasha of Egypt and the Bourtzi, founded by the Venetians in the 13th century and rebuilt by the Turks in 1500.
