Description

Visit the Palace of Nestor and Voidokilia Beach on this day trip that combines a fascinating history lesson with relaxing down time at a picturesque beach.

Our trip will begin from your hotel and crossing traditional villages filled with olive and orange trees but also myths and creeds, for about an hour, we will reach the ridge of the village Ano Englianos.

With a brand-new construction of the new protective shelter (made in June 2016) the Palace of Nestor permits the visitors to experience the Mycenaean past of Messenia. This palace was the administrative seat of the kingdom of Pylos, and Messenia was governed from here during the 13th century B.C. It is the best-preserved Mycenaean palace in all mainland Greece and the second most important center of the Mycenaean world after Mycenae itself. It is a complex of various buildings. It consists of 105 ground floor apartments. It has four main buildings (central ones, wine store) and some smaller ones. The most important compartments of the palace are the big rectangular “throne room” with its circular hearth, the room with the clay bath tub and the stores with their numerous storage vessels. The walls of the palace were decorated with fine wall paintings.

Very close to the palace, we will see the most impressive, largest excavated Mycenaean vaulted tomb of the area. It was built in c.1550-1500 BC and it is estimated that it received at least 17 burials. The excavations brought to light interesting pottery and valuable small items now on display in the archaeological museum of Chora.

Our next stop will be the nearby beach of Voidokilia. Only a few kilometers from Nestor Palaces we will encounter one of the most beautiful beaches in Greece. You will be impressed by its perfectly round shape and the golden colored sand. An experience not to be missed is to swim in its turquoise waters that lies ahead.

The tavern on the seafront, in the nearby village of Yalova will appease our hunger. Alternatively, we can directly take the way back, so you have time to enjoy your afternoon swim in Kalamata.
