Old Navarino Castle

Built in Greece in the 13th century by the Franks, this site was once an important observation place. Its strategic location made it a prime spot for protecting the bay. As such, it endured centuries of attacks and sieges.

The Venetians gained control of the fortress in the 15th century, but it wasn’t long before the Ottomans attempted to stake their claim to the castle. The fortress passed back and forth between Venetian and Ottoman hands before the Ottoman forces eventually proved successful.
