The "Navarinia"

The "Navarinia" were traditionally the celebratory events of the Municipality of Pylos on the anniversary of the Naval Battle of Navarino.

Since 2017, and the 190th anniversary, the highlight of the celebrations is the Reenactment of the Battle of Navarino, with the participation of real sailing ships, the participation of dozens of volunteers, and the blowing up of a replica of the flagship of the Turkish-Egyptian fleet.
