PYLOS The small, picturesque port town of Pylos was built like an amphitheater on the historic Navarino Bay in the Ionian Sea. It has the largest natural harbor in the Peloponnese and has a long history. Today it combines modernity and antiquity. In its lively alleys you can find various restaurants and taverns as well as small stores.

Port city of Pylos

The ancient Pylos can be seen, among other things, in the old Pylos Castle, a 13th century fortress. It is one of two castles that guard the strategically important Navarino Bay, on which it is located. Also worth a visit is the cave of King Nestor, the ancient ruler of Pylos, who, according to legend, used this cave as a refuge for his cattle.
