Built on the hill above Pylos, literally on the sea, on the south side, we can admire the castle, which is considered one of the best-saved fortification constructions of our days.
It was built in the 16th century by the Ottoman Turks and later passed to the Venetian rule until the revolution and liberation of Greece in 1821
Its imposing construction testifies to its importance to the occasional conquerors due to the great strategic importance of the fortress. St. Anthony, St. Patrick and St Agnes are composing the lower towers, as one could admire the church of the Transfiguration of the Savior, which used to be an Ottoman mosque during the second Venetian dominance.
If you decide to visit it, it is advised to do so in the morning as the archaeological sites close at 3:00 in the afternoon.
