Ancient Thouria


Ancient Thouria was the most important city in western Messinia. The sea from Avia and Fares to the mouth of the river Pamisos was called “Thouriatis bay”. The ruins of ancient Thouria are located on a hillside about 10 km to the northwest of Kalamata, to the north of the present town of Thouria.

The citadel of the classical period of ancient Thouria was not completely abandoned and continued to be inhabited during the imperial times, the Middle Ages and the Ottoman rule.
