Katakolon

Katakolon is a scenic port town located in western Greece. It’s most famously known for being the gateway to the ancient ruins of Olympia, the birthplace of the Olympic Games. The town itself offers plenty of charming restaurants and cafes along the coastline, where you can enjoy a delicious meal while taking in beautiful views of the Ionian Sea. Katakolon is also an ideal stop for beach lovers, with its clean, sandy beaches that are perfect for swimming and sunbathing. Other highlights include the Olympia Archaeological Museum where you will find the Head of Hera.

 

 

 

Things to do in Katakolon

Olympia

Olympia

To begin your unforgettable journey, you'll make your way 25 miles east of Katakolon to Ancient Olympia. Built in about 600 B.C.E. as a place to worship Zeus, the most important Greek god, Ancient Olympia went on to become the birthplace of the Olympic Games.

St. Nicolas Church

St. Nicolas Church

The little church of Agios Nikolas is painted in white and blue, the Greek colors, reminds us of the churches in the Cyclades islands, which dominate the scenery. Simplicity is usually the main theme when it comes to the outside of Greek churches, while the scene changes dramatically when you enter inside – Orthodox churches are always beautiful, vibrant, but also a little dark and heavy.

Plakes Beach

Plakes Beach

Also called Reneta, Plakes Beach is located about 200 metres from Katakolon Port and is easily reachable on foot. This little pebble beach is lapped by clear, peaceful waters, and is supposedly jellyfish-free, making it perfect for both young and old visitors.
