In historic center
23rd March Square
The Historic Center is located north of the shopping district, around the Holy Apostles Church, and south of the Castle. Wandering through its narrow alleys is like travelling back in time. There, visitors have the opportunity to discover old buildings that survived the passage of time, mansions, stone-built churches, museums, stores that sell local products, cafés, meze places and restaurants.

Castle of Kalamata
It is standing in the northern part of the city, on a low hill, the Nedon river running at its foot. On that same hill, Pharis built the acropolis of Pharae. It was there that the palaces of the kings of the ancient city were. On its ruins, the Byzantines built a Christian church (6th century). The site was later fortified. It is during the Frankish rule (13th century), especially under the rule of the Villehardouin dynasty, that the Castle acquired its present form. The fortification was preserved and underwent additions during the years of Venetian and Ottoman rule.
