Koroni Castle by Kevrekidis Koroni Castle by Kevrekidis
Κάστρο της Κορώνης, Μεσσηνία.

Castle of Koroni, Messenia Greece.

The Byzantine Castle of Koroni is built on the ruins of the ancient Messenian town of Asine. It was erected in the 6th or 7th century A.D. and was used all through the Byzantine period. Koroni was captured by the Venetians in 1206 and was used as a supplying center. In 1500 the castle was occupied by the Ottoman Sultan Bayezid II and remained under Turkish domination until 1686 when it was recaptured by the Venetians. In 1715, when the Venetians left the Peloponnese, the castle was again dominated by the Turks who kept it until 1828, when it was liberated by the French general Maison.
