The little Byzantine church of Ayios Vasilios is located on the highway Pylos - Methoni, opposite the hill of Ayios Onoufrios, just about 2 km before the town of Methoni. In order to find the little church, you should turn left at the turnpike road as you are driving on the highway, and then left again at the narrow dirt road that will appear just in front of you. Attention is required in order you not to be lost, as there is no relevant sign on the highway leading to the church and you might skip the turn and find yourselves in the entrance to the town of Methoni. The little church dates back to 1100 B.C. and is a beautiful Byzantine construction. According to ancient sources, the temple is an example of ancient cruciform architecture which belongs to the so-called transitional type. The latter indicates the combination of the church’s plan shaping a Christian cross with the three-isled domed basilica. In the interior of the church, the archaeologists have discovered only traces of wall-paintings, mainly in the area of the sanctuary. Unfortunately, intact Byzantine frescoes have not survived in the church to the present day.
