The Municipality of Pylos-Nestor, in collaboration with the Public Welfare Institution, established in 2011 the annual “Cultural Evenings”, whose aim is to bring out the area as a centre of spiritual and cultural activity, and one that supports and enhances creative values.
The Municipality of Pylos-Nestor was constituted in 2011, when the Kallikratis Plan decided to merge the pre-existing municipalities of Pylos, Nestor, Koroni, Methoni, Papaflessa and Chiliochoria. The “Cultural Evenings” have managed to incorporate into their programme many of the former municipalities’ events, thus succeeding in bringing the people even closer, promoting, at the same time, the area’s unified character.
The events last from mid-July to the end of August, attracting to the Municipality of Pylos-Nestor thousands of visitors, who choose this destination in order to combine their vacations with spiritual uplift and entertainment.
The events include theatre and dance performances, concerts, children’s theatre and also events related to local cuisine and folklore tradition.
