Methoni of Messinia


Methoni is an important town in the Messenia Region of southern Greece, which covers the westernmost of the four "fingers" that extend from the Peloponnese Peninsula.  Its fortress played an important role during the Middle Ages and Early Modern periods, when the Peloponnese coastline was the subject of intense struggles between (at various times) the Byzantine, Venetian, and Ottoman Empires.  In this drone video by walkinginhellas, you'll get an aerial view of the town as well as the fortress, which lies immediately to its south.
