Weekend time and decided to get away from Athens. Destination, my village located in Messinia, Southern Peloponnese. Just before the weather started getting gloomy, I decided to go for a walk in one of my favorite places in the region. The ruins of ancient Messene.
I discovered this magical place more than ten years ago, when it was completely unknown to anyone but scholars and German tourists. During this time much work has been done to restore the monuments that used to lie in the Messenian olive groves.
