This is a typical itinerary for this productStop At:
Ypapanti Church, Alexandraki, Kalamata 241 00 Greece
The largest church and patron saint of the city, from where our tour begins.
The selection of the starting point of our tour is not by chance! In 1986 a large earthquake exposed the ancient city of Kalamata (Farai), hiding just under the sanctuary of Ypapanti’s Church. Parts of the fortification wall of the ancient city, statues and pottery sherds, slept for centuries in the bowels of the church and now they are in the Acropolis Museum of Athens.
Duration: 10 minutesStop At:
Castle of Kalamata, Sparths 28, Kalamata 241 00 Greece
We will continue walking around the city’s castle, the one that Villehardouins’ family decided to build during the 12th century. At its base, we will have the opportunity to see two houses preserved from 1821, despite the years that have passed and the earthquake that tore down all the other buildings. We will see also the first hospital of free Kalamata, after 300 years of slavery under the Turks.
Duration: 30 minutesStop At:
The Church of Agioi Apostoloi, Square of March 23, Kalamata Greece
