  • Overview

    Now an affluent urban centre and a significant port, Kalamata is said to be the ‘beating heart of Messinia’. Surrounded by forested mountains the city holds an enviable position along the southern coast of the Peloponnese.

    The warm Mediterranean Sea beckons holiday makers to its shores. With long stretches of sandy beach Kalamata offers a superb location to devote the days to soaking up the glorious Grecian sun and the evenings to strolling along the coastal road, Navarinou, observing the boats drift into the harbour.

    This historic city is home to many beautifully crafted buildings, charming shops and vibrant night-time entertainment. Take time to visit the Kalograion Monastery with its history spanning over 200 years. The Nuns who inhabit the Monastery sell their hand-made silk shawls, which can make the perfect gift or holiday souvenir. Offering panoramic views of the city, The Kalamata Castle is also worth a visit. Located in the north of the city, the Castle provides the venue for theatre shows, musical performances and a renowned international dance festival which comes each year.
