Kalamata - a city with a long history

Enjoy the sparkling excitement and visit Kalamatas cultural sights.

Worth a trip is for example the little church 'Agii Apostoli' from the 10th century or the castle of Kalamata, the 'Kastro' - which is just a short walk away (10 minutes) from the Hotel Rex. This impressive scene is often used as a location for theatre and movie shows, which are put on more and more during the summer months by Kalamata’s cultural office, the Pantazopoulion.

Another gem is the archäological museum which displays objects found in Messenia. For train enthusiasts Kalamatas historical train museum is a must-see.
