Ypapanti Church

It's a modern looking church. Nothing special. We were in the neighborhood so we just walked in but it's not worth a special visit.

Nothing special
Jun 2019
Kalamata is a bit of a strange city. A city with a fairly large population, the administrative center of a large and well-known historical region, has itself been prominently marked in the history of Greece, only the churches in it are more than half a hundred. But here's the problem and the paradox - in Kalamatathere is not something special, inherent only to this city. Everything is the same as in other places, no worse, but no better. And the Cathedral of Ypapanti is the same like this - built in the late 19th century, has quite ordinary appearance, although it looks like the visual dominant of the site under the castle of Kalamata. There used to be an old church here. An ancient icon of the virgin Ipapanti was found at its excavations. Now it is in the Cathedral and is considered the patroness of the city. It is difficult to say anything else remarkable about the Cathedral.

Entrance is free. It's worth to get inside for a few minutes and admire the gorgeous historical building. In hot days the church offers possibility to cool yourself.

Spectacular example of Greek churches

Such a pity the outside is currently covered in netting for restoration work but once you walk inside the majesty of the painting is worth a stop to appreciate the detail of the work and joy that has been taken to create such a space

Worth visiting. The priest was very helpful in answering questions.You can also visit the women's monastery a few doors away. These nuns are famed for their silk products.

Nice church

The interior is fantastic and so well decorated. However, an A/C is recommended, as the humidity in Kalamata is always high and you can't stay there for long.

A beautiful church, but nothing that blew my mind, worth a visit if you are in Kalamata but I wouldn't especially go for the church. It's a good way to spend ten minutes on a general tour of the place.
