Went on a windy day with lots of waves crashing on the castle and it was amazing! On a cold day though I suppose it would get extremely windy and cold

This place is bigger that it looks. My kids were a bit tired from travelling most of the day but enjoyed the lighthouse the most. It has spectacular views, especially at sunset.

This castle was only two euros and we were there for two hours before anyone else came! It has a crumbling romantic beauty and is a large site with many areas to explore. The bourtzi with the causeway's crashing waves is incredibly fun. Take care...More

You need 1 euro to enter- they don't have change for 20 euro so be sure to have small change! Otherwise a typical castle and the history behind it is what makes this a worthwhile visit in the small town of Methonia. Nice small outdoor...More

The castle was nice, especially the area of bourtzi which is the end of the castle. You can easily walk through it.

Nice place but really abandoned. Should have more work to renew old statues. It has some very beautiful structures near the sea. Historic place - must visit!

Set on the beautiful waters of Methoni we enjoyed a visit to the castle. The entry price was reasonable. Walking across to the actual castle was a great experience. The water is crystal clear with beautiful views across the bay.

This castle, perched on the rocks overlooking the bay has a fascinating history and is well worth a visit. The entrance is cheap at 2€ and you can wander inside the castle grounds which are huge. My only negative comment is that Methoni castle is...More

The castle is impressive, the views are fabulous, the town of Methoni is beautiful, spotlessly clean with lovely tree lined streets. Reasonable entrance fee of 2€ (1/2 for seniors). Nice taverna right on the corner opposite the parking lot for the castle.

We were there from 21st to 28th May so maybe it had only just opened.
