Description

After the peak up we drive for the archaeological site of Ancient Messene (also called Messini or Ithomi) is located in a beautiful natural environment near the Mavromati village, 30 minutes from Kalamata city. Ancient Messene is one of the most important excavated cities of Greece. The ancient city is well preserved due to the fact that it was never destroyed or covered by a newer settlement. Inside the archaeological site the visitor will find sanctuaries, public buildings, houses, fortifications and funerary monuments. While heading downhill from Mavromati village the visitor comes across the Archaeological Museum. Findings from the excavations of Ancient Messini are exhibited in the museum and evince the importance of this city. The marble statue of Hermes is exhibited in this museum.After visiting the museum and driving through the olive groves and the vineyards, the visitor can see the theater. The theater was constructed during the 3rd-2nd century BC and was mainly used for cultural events and some political gatherings.The Arsinoe Fountain can be found between the Ancient Theater and the Agora. According to Pausanias the name of the fountain derived from Arsinoe who was the mother of Asclepius and the daughter of the mythical king of Messinia, Leucippus.One of the most important buildings of Ancient Messini was the Asclepeion. Pausanias described the building mainly as a museum of artworks and less like a place where patients were treated. Lets go to Polilimnio Waterfalls. There are a series of small waterfalls and pools running through a small gorge, with the largest pool and waterfall at the top, where the water is deep. After a 30 minute walk we reach the final and highest waterfall where the opportunity for a refreshing swim is given. There is also a rope ladder which if climbed allows for some high-diving. You can swim in the top pool and you may see local lads diving of the cliffs. The gorge is teeming with wildlife and is very picturesque, ideal for a hot day, the cold mountain water is cold but refreshing. It’s a very beautiful place. We will transfer you back to the meeting point at Kalamata city.
