Sunrise koroni castle!


Here is an excellent aerial video of a castle near the southern tip of mainland Greece.  The town of Koroni is situated on the southern coast of the Peloponnese region, in a region known as Messinia.  The castle which sits over the town was constructed during the period when the region was part of the Venetian Empire, during the Middle Ages.  It subsequently became a key strategic location in the struggle between Venice and the Ottoman Empire, coming under control of the latter around 1500.
