I want that recipe please....
I am the daughter of Earth and Water,
And the nursling of the Sky;
I pass through the pores of the ocean and shores;
I change, but I cannot die.
For after the rain when with never a stain
The pavilion of Heaven is bare,
And the winds and sunbeams with their convex gleams
Build up the blue dome of air,
I silently laugh at my own cenotaph,
And out of the caverns of rain,
Like a child from the womb, like a ghost from the tomb,
I arise and unbuild it again.
By Percy Bysshe Shelley
Where tradition meets beauty... Where nature meets hospitality... Where blue skies meet golden sunsets...
Homer called Methoni "αμπελόεσσα: rich in vines" and tradition maintains that the village is so called because the donkeys (oni) carrying its wine used to get drunk (metho) from the heavy aroma. Homer also mentioned that Methoni was one of the seven cities that Agamemnon offered Achilles in order to alleviate his anger.
Laze by the sea or explore archaeological sites like castle of Methoni, Nestor Palace, ancient Messini and natural wonders, like Sapientza island, Voidokilia beach, Gialova lagoon and the Polilimnio waterfalls.
Spectacular views and emotional scenery ! Absolutely breathtaking ! You should definitely visit Methoni.

According to the Big Bang theory, over 15 billion years ago the universe was created by a giant explosion. Since then, billions and billions of neutrinos, particles with zero mass, moving at the speed of light across the universe, penetrating the mass and continue their nonstop crazy journey. The aim of the scientists is to capture a neutrino, to study and learn that through this, the secrets of the universe and the history of human evolution.
For this reason, NESTOR institute, in Pylos - Greece, has created the largest neutrino telescope in the world. A giant photonic telescope, with innovative design and high technology, is facing the stars and detecting neutrinos. It is immersed in the deepest point in the Mediterranean Sea, at the crack of tectonic plates of Europe, Asia and Africa, very close to the coast of Methoni.
The “neutrino hunting project” is happening in mythical Messenia and is one of the most ambitious experiments in the world.
The Gialova lagoon (25 km away from Methoni), is an exceptional physical environment, an important biotope with a variety of ecosystems. It is a place of supreme beauty and interest. Visit it during the whole year, and enjoy the variety of flora and fauna that it has to offer.
It is one of the parts of Greece that is the route of the migratory birds on their way to the South. Here you can find most of the kinds of birds of Greece. It is also the only part of Europe that is the habitat of the African Chameleon, an endangered species.
The Gialova lagoon is the habitat of a large variety of birds and animals. Explore it!
Birds, nature, history, chameleons, turtles, landscapes, all that compose a pleasant and educational excursion for everybody.
It is one of the most amazing heart-shaped islands in the world. Called by locals as “Kardia”, due to its heart-shaped silhouette, the small rocky island is a skerry of the Sapientza Island, in the Messinian Golf. With a population of seven inhabitants, according to the latest census, the island is almost a desert paradise.
