Methoni, western Greece. The castle here is one of the largest in the med and built by the Venetians in the 13th century. Another stunning sunset in Greece, we came here in April on our way to the med, it was quite different... there were no boats except for us and barely anyone in the town/ restaurants, it is an eary feeling when everything is shut up and nobody around, so a pleasant surprise to feel a totally different atmosphere this time.. #methoni #greece #westerngreece #mainlandgreece #castle #greekcastle #saillife #sail #sailing #sailingingreece #greekanchorage #sailing #sailors #lovegreece #greeksunset

Methoni Castle in Messinia, Peloponnese, southwestern Greece on the Ionic sea is considered one of the largest in the Mediterranean. It was built by Venetians in the 13th century on the site of the older Byzantine fortress. One can still see inscriptions, coats of arms and the winged lion of St. Mark across the castle. The fortress can be accessed via an impressive stone bridge built over a deep moat . It replaced an orignal wooden bridge. The Turks seized the castle in early 16th century. They added four towers, baths and constructed a fortified 2-storey octogonal tower with a round dome called Bourtzi on a nearby island (in the picture). Under Turkish rule it was used as a prison and an execution site where many Greeks were slaughtered. Photo by @giotisr👍👍👍🙏🏻😍 . Замок Метони на Пелопоннесе на юго-западе Греции на берегу Ионического моря считается одним из самых крупных в Средиземноморье. Замок был постороен в 13м веке венецианцами на месте византийской крепости. До сих пор в разных частях замка можно наткнуться на крылатых львов Святого Марка, венецианские надписи и родовые гербы. Пройти в крепость можно со стороны материка по длинному арочному каменному мосту, который переброшен через глубокий ров. В начале 16го века Турки захватили крепость, присторили четыре башни, бани, а на отдельном островке, соединенным с замком небольшим мостиком, соорудили 2-этажную восьмиугольную башню с куполом. Для греков башня Буртзи - символ турецкой оккупации. В ней была устроена тюрьма и оборудовано место для казни. . #метони #замокметони #methoni #methonicastle #greekcastle #greekcastles #castlesofgreece #μεθωνη #καστρο #instacastle #instacastles #medievaltimes #medievalcastle #medievaleurope #medievalarchitecture #medievalfortress #middleages #замкимира #замкиевропы #europeancastles #castlesofeurope #средневековье #средневековыйзамок #castlesofinstagram #средневековаякрепость #средневековаяархитектура #castlearchitecture #греция🇬🇷

Methoni,you have given us the gift of clean clothes and sheets,and for that we will be eternally grateful. We have been looking everywhere for a washing machine to wash our sheets and found one in a campsite in Methoni. Our two massive rucksacks full of laundry raised some eyebrows but who cares when we will smell so clean! We had to stop for a beer to celebrate,and what an enchanting little town this is! Complete with breathtaking castle and giving us shelter from some high winds. Luckily we got some sightseeing in early!

Tonight, we explored a little bit of ancient history and walked through the stunning little fortress city, the castle of Monemvasia. We watched the sun set over the ocean, behind the mountains then had an amazing meal afterwards #greekadventure #greece2019 #greekcastle #monemvasia #monemvasiacastle
