Kalamata

Located on the southern side of the Peloponnese peninsula in Greece in the region of Messinia, Kalamata is a fascinating city famous for its mouth-watering olives and its tumultuous history. Located on the site of ancient settlement Pharai, the modern city is named after a miracle-inducing icon of the Virgin Mary which can be found nowadays in the Church of Ypapantis, the large cathedral which dominates Kalamata. Despite the miracles, Kalamata has had a turbulent past, with destruction of the city during the Greek War of Independence, a 19th Century rebuild by the French and a devastating earthquake in 1986. However, the city is now famed for its gastronomy and offers plenty of fresh produce markets from which to sample the world-famous olives and other delicious local fare.
