Throughout its long history, the Messenia region has been influenced by a variety of cultures, including the Romans, Byzantines, and Venetians, each of which left their mark on the region.

The region dates back to ancient times when it was home to the powerful city-state of Andania and Pylos. The ancient Greeks believed that Pylos was the birthplace of the legendary hero, Nestor, and the city played a key role in the Trojan War.

Messenia was conquered by the Romans in the 2nd century BC and remained under Roman rule until the fall of the Roman Empire in the 5th century AD. During this time, the region became an important center of trade and commerce.

Messenia was also home to the town Kaprissos (today known as Kyparissia), which in the ancient world was an important port and trading center. Its strategic location on the west coast made it an attractive target for various conquerors throughout its history.

After the fall of the Roman Empire, the Messenia region came under the control of the Byzantines and later the Venetians. In the 13th century, it was conquered by the Franks, who built several castles in the region to defend against Turkish invaders.

Today the ancient ruins and cultural landmarks spread around the region are testaments to the rich history of the region and offers a fascinating glimpse into the past.

This is Kyparissia

Kyparissia is a historic and beautiful town just waiting for you to come, get to know it, and become a part of its story.

The town carries a traditional aura with its old stone houses and red/beige-tiled roofs, narrow streets, and historical sites, like its Roman castle. It's located beautifully on the foothill of Egaleo Mountain, overlooking the turquoise-blue waters of the Ionian/Adriatic Sea, across from the city of Catania in Sicily.

Across town, there are small taverns and street cafes that serve delicious, freshly caught fish and local-style cuisine in the warm Mediterranean air. Every week, from Friday to Sunday, there are farmers markets in town and other nearby villages, where you can buy fresh vegetables, homemade olive oil, and all kinds of local products. The tradition has lasted for over 100 years. 

The nature stretches along the 20 km of scenic coastline and offers rare sights like crystal clear water and small sea turtles making their way from the beach to the sea.

The people of Kyparissia are warm and welcoming, and understandably have a deep love for their hometown and its history. You will feel right at home.
