A full day program which will take you to a beautiful medieval castle standing on the summit of a hill on the westernmost headland of the Peloponnese. It was built between 1220-1230 and was the strongest fortress in the Frankish principate of Achaia commanding the passage from West to East. It actually converted the area into a crossroad of different civilizations in a period less known to most. Feel the atmosphere of the medieval times as you wander around within its huge stone walls. Special medieval play programs are available suitable for young children. After your visit to the castle, on your way back, you will make a stop at the golden sandy beach of Kourouta (near Kyllini) for lunch or coffee and of course a refreshing dip.

 

  • Enter the core of the castle, where the prince's palace was located.
  • Admire the stone catapult projectiles which were once used to defend the castle.
  • See the huge cisterns for the collection of rainwater under the ground.
  • Explore the princess' bedroom which has now been converted into a beautiful museum.
  • Children will take part in medieval role-play as they live the fairytale experience.
  • After your visit to the castle, on your way back, you will make a stop at the golden sandy beach of Kourouta (near Kyllini) for lunch or coffee and of course a refreshing dip.
  • Ideal for families with young children; the waters of Kourouta are crystal clear and thus it has been awarded with the Blue Flag, a voluntary Eco-label given to clean beaches that are also safe.
