“"Thiasos" (at historical center of Kalamata), it's a traditional place for enjoying great mezes (small dishes) by drinking ouzo, tsipouro or whatever else you want.. Tip: We suggest you try a pork with potatoes in the oven as it is the dish for which they are reputed and it is delicious..”

Church
“The cathedral of Ypapantis, built in 1839, is a stunning Byzantine-style church that is home to a holy icon of the Virgin Mary of the same name, which dates back to 672 AD. It was discovered in the Ottoman governor’s stables after he had a dream of a woman telling him to dig in a specific spot. He even converted to Christianity after the discovery, due to the numerous miracles that it had supposedly performed. Severely damaged by the 1886 and 1986 earthquakes, the church, which sits on a square bearing the same name, was restored both times.”
