Cruises from Pylos
Pylos is the name of a large bay and a town on the west coast of the Peloponnese Peninsula in southern Greece. It consists of two distinct settlements several kilometres apart. Old Pylos is situated on the NW of the bay, and New Pylos on the SE. Interestingly, each town has its own castle.
One of its interesting features is the large town square that ends at the port and contains an enormous plantanos tree that can fit approximately a hundred cafe tables beneath it. Also of interest are the remains of ships - seen in the clear waters - that were 'accidentally' sunk by Britain in the Battle of Navarino.
