In my last post I gave you a photographic tour of the main castle at Methoni, finishing at the gateway to the Bourtzi, a small outpost castle that guarded the sea, which I shall now focus on.
THE WORD BOURTZI
Here are the origins of the word Bourtzi:

LEAVING METHONI CASTLE
There were a few final photograophs as we headed back to the car preparatory to moving on to Nestor’s palace.

A castle I wanna visit and investigate. Do they maintain the castle? Seems it looks a bit worn out.
A lot of work is being done on the castle both maintaining it and improving it.
Beautiful. If walls could talk they would have many stories to tell I think.
Yes indeed 🙂
