Located at Cape Tigani near the bay of Mezapos, the Byzantine castle of Maini (or Mainis) is the oldest in Mani. Built in the years of the Emperor Justinian, the castle reservoirs and parts of the walls have survived.
How to Get There
To reach the castle, we drive past Stavri and end up at Agia Kyriaki. From then on we continue on foot. There is no specific path; just head toward the cape. Walk cautiously, because the ground is rough and rocky.
The total visit will take more than 90 minutes.
