Methoni Photo Journal
If you ever find yourself in the Southern Peloponnese, you need to visit the medieval castle in Methoni. I love exploring castles and imagining what life was like waaay back when. The Venetians built the castle around the early 13th century and is one of the largest ones in the Mediterranean. The main attraction is the Bourtzi, a prison used for executions during the Turkish Occupation. It looks really pretty, but when you think about it, it’s kind of creepy!
The best part of the castle was that the apartment we rented was right behind it. We couldn’t have asked for a better view than waking up in the morning, having a coffee and seeing the castle right there. There is also a great view of the sunset right behind the castle near the moat and rocks. It was quite windy when we went, but the views and sunset were incredible. If you’re into castles too, add this to your list.
