PYLOS – VOIDOKILIA – GIALOVA
Pylos, one of the biggest towns in Messinia, is a historic and quiet town on the coast of Navarino Bay. It is very famous for the castle known as Neokastro. The impressive monument of the “three Admirals” that sank the Turkish-Egyptian fleet, on 20 October 1827, dominates the modern centre of the town.
