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.

  • It was an unforgettable experience, worthing the effort to climb up the hill. At the middle of the climbing path you meet a great cave, special place for the first panoramic shots to Voidokoilia bay.....  more

  • I visited the castle yesterday afternoon, a good idea to have sneakers and a walking stick to chase the spider webs along the path Breathtaking view at the top overlooking the surrounding...

  • Fantastic walk and amazing views. We visited in May 2022 and at that time the actual ruins themselves were fairly overgrown. The descent down from the top on the beach side is certainly challenging and a reasonable level of fitness is required for that part.
  • Very exciting and interesting place with great views in all directions. We'll worth the climb. Not well maintained and you need good strong footwear to avoid damage to feet. Not place for children unless they are older and used to demanding environments.
