Top Kalamata Attractions
Spend the morning exploring the spectacular Modern Greek Art Gallery and the Benakeion Archaeological Museum, both of which are perfect for culture vultures. For lunch, take a walk around King George Square, a much loved meeting point filled with the aroma of delicious food that can be sampled in a range of coffee shops, cafés and restaurants.
The railway station district is surrounded by plenty of pretty side streets, cafés, bars and hotels situated close to both the city centre and the resort’s world-class beaches. The Kalamata beach area, meanwhile, is home to many elegant 4-star hotels, within walking distance of pristine white sandy beaches and offering breath-taking sea views.
Kalamata holidays will leave you spoilt for choice when deciding which cultural and historical attractions to visit first.
One of the area’s top historical attractions is the dramatically placed hillside castle, originally built in the 13th century. Grab yourself a slice of history before taking in the mesmerising views of the city below. Today, the castle is used as a glorious open air theatre, and is home to the annual Kalamata International Dance Festival. Stroll further around the centre and admire the Temple of the Visitation of the Saviour and the Old City as well as exploring a host of interesting museums and art galleries including the Historical and Folkloric Museum and the Railway Park Open Air Museum.
