Kalamata - Historical centre of Kalamata Historical centre of Kalamata
Kalamata was a very small city and houses were built around and very close to the city walls of the ancient acropolis. In the beginning of the previous century it started spreading and it was finally united with the houses built by the port. The old city now is the area between the church of Ipapanti, Spartis street and 23 of March square. It is considered to be the best place to start exploring Kalamata. While wandering around the streets you will see old buildings with traditional architecture that lasted over the years, stone-built churches, museums and shops with local products. Here you can also find the small church of Holy Apostles, where on 23 March 1821 took place the first doxology of free Greece after 400 years of Ottoman occupation.
