Katakolon is a charming seaside town over-looking the Lonian Sea situated in western part of Ilia, Greece. This seaside town boasts the gateway of a whole host of ancient ruins and archaeological sites. Katakolon is just a short distance from the birthplace of Olympics and visitors come from all over to discover the history behind this ancient tradition. Whilst in Katakolon you can discover the wonders of Olympia, learn all about the Greek Gods, explore the ruins of the Temple of Zeus, visit the local art gallery or simply relax and unwind on the sea front. There really is something for everyone in this ancient historical port of call.
The Old Town offers shops, boutiques and market stalls. The best buys from these places are Greek worry beads, honey, olive oil, handicrafts and artwork. The ‘Art Gallery' is where you can find bronze sculptures by Greek artists, or you can also buy souvenirs of the 2004 Athens Olympic Games and other figurines at Olympia.
The local currency is the Euro. Kalamata is 2 hours ahead of Greenwich meantime (GMT +2).
