Greece - Messinia prefecture - Peloponesse region

Fishing village - Messinia Prefecture

Capital city of Messinia - 80.000 inhabitans. Famous for black olives and high quality olive oil.
The city was donated by the 13th century castle above it by Geoffrey de Villehardouin.  On the north side there is a small Byzantine church dedicated to Virgin mary of Kalomata (of the good eye) from which the city may have taken its name.
