I was interested in visiting a Museum of Ancient Technology that I’d heard was in Katakolon but never managed to find it. Admittedly I didn’t try very hard to locate it after I spent the morning touring Olympia and its museum, having lunch along Katakolon’s harbor and visiting many of the town’s shops. The jewelry shopping by the way is awesome, although I didn't buy anything. Maybe next time.
It’s an interesting village and the surrounding countryside is surprisingly comfortable and settled looking with well-tended small farms. Most of Greece in this area is rocky with dramatic views and cliffs dropping down into crashing seas. Around Katakolon the land is level, non-rocky and arable; as I said comfortable-looking.
