Katakolo Port

Katakolo Port:

Katakolo is a seaside fishing village and is considered the port of Pyrgos.

Τhe port of katakolo was built in the late 19th century in order to function as a transit station for the export of raisins to Europe. Today it functions less as a commercial port and more as a tourist port, as it is an attraction for cruise ships and pleasure boats. The lighthouse of the port, built around 1865, has been designated since 2001 as a historical monument.

Nearby is the capital of the Prefecture of Ilia, Pyrgos, followed by Ancient Olympia, with the world-famous sanctuary of Zeus and the Stadium where the Olympic Games took place in antiquity. In the wider area of ​​Katakolo there are many picturesque beaches such as Saint Andreas beach for swimming and recreation.
