Petreas Castle - Feel the historical atmosphere

Located in: Kardamyli »
Upper Kardamili is the place hosts ofne of the most spectacular fortification complexes of Mani, being the home of the Troupaki-Mourtzinos family, prominent family giving high ranking officers of the revolutionary army in 1821.

Originator of the family was Michael Palaiologos, who lived in the area at the end of the 17th century and his descendant was the chieftain Panagiotis Troupakis - Mourtzinos, a member of the Filiki Etaireia and one of the most important fighters of Greek independence. This was the place where Theodoros Kolokotronis hosted the preparation of the Greek Revolution where, with the help of Mourtzinos and his Maniates warriors, liberated city of Kalamata on 23rd March and gave the first victorious battle at Karytaina.

The stone built settlement is located in Upper Kardamili and incorporates the tower houses of the families Troupaki-Mourtzinou, Petrea, Bahleba and Boukouvala. Inside the complex is the family church of Agios Spyridonas, with the impressive bell tower and the family's graves.

The castle is the oldest building in the complex and it was a residence, a barracks storehouse and watching post.

In nowadays , after an exemplary renovation under the guidance of the Greek Ministry of Culture in order to preserve all its historical and architectural features, the castle is a real landmark for the region.

Ο Πύργος Πετρέα, εντάσσεται σε ένα από τα εμβληματικότερα οχυρωματικά συγκροτήματα της Μάνης, το οποίο υπήρξε ο τόπος κατοικίας της οικογένειας Τρουπάκη-Μούρτζινου, από την οποία προέρχονται οι τελευταίοι καπεταναίοι (άρχοντες) της Μάνης.
Γενάρχης της οικογένειας είναι ο Μιχαήλ Παλαιολόγος, ο οποίος κατοίκησε στην περιοχή στα τέλη του 17ου αιώνα και απόγονός του ο οπλαρχηγός Παναγιώτης Τρουπάκης - Μούρτζινος, μέλος της Φιλικής Εταιρείας και ένας από τους σημαντικότερους αγωνιστές της ελληνικής ανεξαρτησίας. Εδώ φιλοξενήθηκε ο Θεόδωρος Κολοκοτρώνης προετοιμάζοντας την ελληνική επανάσταση όπου με τη βοήθεια του Μούρτζινου και των μανιατών πολεμιστών του, απελευθέρωσε στις 23 Μαρτίου την Καλαμάτα και έδωσε την πρώτη νικηφόρο μάχη του Αγώνα στην Καρύταινα.
Ο πετρόχτιστος οικισμός βρίσκεται στην Πάνω Καρδαμύλη και ενσωματώνει τα πυργόσπιτα των οικογενειών Τρουπάκη-Μούρτζινου, Πετρέα, Μπαχλέμπα και Μπουκουβάλα. Μέσα στο συγκρότημα βρίσκεται ο οικογενειακός ναός του Αγίου Σπυρίδωνα, με το εντυπωσιακό καμπαναριό και τους τάφους των Μούρτζινων.
Ο πύργος, γνωστός και ως βάρδια Πετρέα, ο οποίος είναι το παλαιότερο κτίσμα του συγκροτήματος, υπήρξε κατοικία, μπαρουταποθήκη και φυλάκιο. Σήμερα, μετά από μια υποδειγματική ανακαίνιση που έγινε με την καθοδήγηση του Υπουργείου Πολιτισμού με στόχο να διατηρήσει όλα τα ιστορικά και αρχιτεκτονικά του στοιχεία, ο πύργος αποτελεί ένα πραγματικό ορόσημο για την περιοχή.
Με πέτρινες και ξύλινες σκάλες να τον διατρέχουν, αλλά και πολύτιμα οικογενειακά κειμήλια να κοσμούν τους χώρους του, προσφέρει στον επισκέπτη μια ξεχωριστή ταξιδιωτική εμπειρία, αλλά και μια ματιά «εκ των έσω» στην ελληνική ιστορία.
Η απεριόριστη θέα στο μεσσηνιακό κόλπο και τον Ταΰγετο, όπου μπορεί κανείς να δει στην ψηλότερη κορυφή του μια λαξευμένη πυραμίδα, είναι ένα ακόμα χαρακτηριστικό του πύργου.
Οι περιπατητές μπορούν να εξερευνήσουν την περιοχή μέσα από ένα δίκτυο μονοπατιών και να ανακαλύψουν το φαράγγι του Βυρού, ενώ σε μικρή απόσταση βρίσκονται πανέμορφες παραλίες με άμμο ή βότσαλα.
Το κέντρο της Καρδαμύλης είναι σε απόσταση 500 μέτρων και εκεί ο επισκέπτης μπορεί να βρει κάθε είδους κατάστημα για τις καθημερινές του ανάγκες όπως σούπερ μάρκετ, εστιατόρια, καφέ, γραφεία ενοικίασης αυτοκινήτων κτλ. Η απόσταση από την Καλαμάτα είναι 37 χλμ. και από την Αθήνα 238 χλμ.
Το σπίτι είναι πλήρως εξοπλισμένο για τη διαμονή των επισκεπτών, διαθέτει κλιματιστικά, τηλεόραση plasma και wi-fi.
