The ancient palace of the famous king of Pylos, Nestor, is located 14 km from Pylos. It is the best preserved Mycenaean palace throughout Greece. History has recorded many attempts to locate Nestor’s palace until 1939, when the first findings came to light. The excavations continue until today in order to reveal all the pieces of the palace.
The palace complex consists of four buildings, including a number of apartments. The total number of apartments in the palace stands at 150. The most important apartment is the so called “throne room”, with the circular hearth.
The visitors of the area can also see the vaulted tomb attributed to Nestor and his successor, Thrasymedes, as well as all the archaeological findings of excavations, which are kept in the Chora Museum.
