Methoni is one of the castles-cities of Messinia built in a very strategic location. Its castle dominates the area built on a rock which penetrates the sea and is separated from the mainland by an artificial moat. The jewel of the castle is its tower the ‘’Burji’’ which is connected with an arched, stone paved bridge. With its old houses with wrought-iron balconies and its magnificent Venetian citadel, the southernmost town of the western coast of the Peloponnese is a charming, flower-filled little spot that is well-equipped for tourists. Above all, it is known for the magnificent setting provided by its sandy beach.
