RIVERS PAMISOS RIVER Worshipped in ancient times for its healing powers, the Pamisos river flows into the Messenian Gulf east of Messini and west of Kalamata. Its spring system is on the western slopes of the Taygetus mountains. One of the river's main sources is a spring at Agios Floros (20 kilometres north of Kalamata) which derives from a large karstic basin ensuring a continuous flow throughout the year. The spring is centrally located opposite the restored Church of Saints Floros and Lavros, next to a giant plane tree. It is the perfect setting for a canal-side stroll and the starting point for a cycle ride.
