The Old Navarino castle (Greek: Παλαιό Ναυαρίνο) is a 13th-century Frankish fortress near Pylos, Greece. It is one of two castles guarding the strategic bay on which it sits; the other is the Ottoman-built New Navarino fortress. In juxtaposition with the latter, it is frequently known simply as Palaiokastro or Paliokastro (Greek: Παλαιόκαστρο or Παλιόκαστρο, "old castle"). It occupies the site of the Athenian fort at the 425 BC Battle of Pylos.Put Old Castle Navarino on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Gialova journey maker tool.

Great sense of history on this beautiful walk up to very old castle. Bit of a rack scramble on the steep track down to the bay. But a more gentle slope on the main path on seaward side.
