Messinia County, Peloponnese, Greece

Peloponnese: the classic Greece (there was certainly no island but a peninsula until the Corinth Canal was completed 1893). This peninsula is full of history and the places are close to each other. It was here that a great deal of ancient history began and in the Iliad more than 20 sites from Peloponnese are mentioned.

Messinia County consists of several different municipalities with small genuine Greek communities, all west of Kalamata. The area is described in the Iliad and some of the places are still inhabited today, such as Pylos. The popular resorts Koroni, Methoni and Pylos is close and despite the winding roads it does not take very long to get around that part of Messinia.
