What to see in Katakolon

Katakolon, a picturesque Greek port on the Peloponnese coast, serves as the gateway to Olympia, the birthplace of the Olympic Games. This charming village invites travellers to explore ancient history, soak up the Mediterranean sun on sandy shores and savour Greek cuisine amidst its quaint streets. A treasure for history and beach lovers.

One of the primary reasons travellers flock to Katakolon is to explore the ancient archaeological site of Olympia, just a short drive away. As the birthplace of the Olympic Games, this sacred site holds immense historical significance and offers a fascinating journey back in time. Begin your exploration at the Olympia Archaeological Museum, where you'll encounter an exceptional collection of artefacts, sculptures and historical relics. Marvel at the famous statue of Hermes of Praxiteles and the intricate pediments of the Temple of Zeus, showcasing mythological scenes.

A short drive from Katakolon takes you to the charming town of Pyrgos, the capital of the Elis region and a culinary delight for food enthusiasts. This town is known for its warm hospitality and authentic Greek cuisine. Start your culinary journey with a visit to a traditional Greek taverna, where you can savour local specialities prepared with fresh, locally sourced ingredients. Classic dishes like moussaka, souvlaki and fresh seafood are staples of the menu. Don't forget to try the famous Greek salad with juicy tomatoes, crisp cucumbers, creamy feta cheese and a drizzle of olive oil.

If you're in search of sun and sea, a short drive from Katakolon will take you to the stunning Kourouta Beach, nestled along the western coast of the Peloponnese. This idyllic stretch of coastline is known for its golden sands and crystal-clear waters, making it an ideal destination for a leisurely beach day. Kourouta Beach offers all the essentials for a relaxing day in the sun, including sunbeds and umbrellas available for rent. The calm waters are perfect for swimming and snorkelling, and the gradual slope into the sea makes it suitable for visitors of all ages.
