Monastery of Zoodohou Pigis Velanidias

Only 7 kilometres away from Kalamata, this monastery is over 300 years old, founded in 1697. There used to be a tower which was destroyed over 100 years ago. This monastery played an important role during the war of independence and Ibrahim Pasha destroyed it in 1825. This happened again during the German occupation. Reconstruction began in 1992.
