Goal - Vision

The ultimate goal of the Foundation is the systematic promotion of the historical and cultural presence of the Messinian castle towns of the Municipality of Pylos-Nestoras in their over time evolving course in Hellenism, on the one hand and the location, promotion and internationalization of the comparative advantages of Greek regions through three pillars of activities: cultural, development and social, on the other.

The Municipality of Pylos-Nestoras is a privileged observatory on Mediterranean cultural and commercial transactions between the Latin West and the Greek East. The ports of Koroni, Methoni and Pylos with their fertile hinterland and the surrounding islands, typically determine the area of southern Messenia as a strategic hub for lines between the Ionian and Aegean Sea, for the whole period of navigation.

Through its centuries' communication with the sea, the ruins of the castle cities of Methoni, Koroni and Pylos are definitely the most important historical evidence and constitute the greatest challenge for the future, which means being reinserted in the cultural, economic and social fabric of the region.
