We've visited the Venetian ruins at Methoni castle, and Pylos castle as well. However Koroni castle beats both of them. There is so much more to see, especially the old nunnery. It's worth allocating a few hours to walk around the massive site. Really interesting...More

Although perhaps not as visually outstanding as its sister "eyes of Venice" castle at Methoni, the castle at Koroni is still worth a visit. It is a short uphill walk through the busy town to its entrance and within its walls is a convent where...More

After a short walk up the hill through the town, you arrive at the gate of the castle. From there, you have a great view of Koroni. The town itself is beautiful, and spending time in the ruins of the castle, and the nearby monastery...More
