Neokastro, also known as New Navarino Castle, is a historical fortress located near the town of Pylos in the southwestern part of the Peloponnese peninsula in Greece.

Neokastro was built by the Ottoman Turks in the 16th century on the site of the ancient city of Pylos. It was constructed to fortify the area and control maritime traffic in the region. The castle played a significant role in the area's history, particularly during the Ottoman rule and subsequent conflicts.

Today, Neokastro is open to visitors who can explore its ruins and learn about its history. The castle offers panoramic views of the surrounding area, including the town of Pylos, the bay, and the nearby islands. Visitors can walk along the walls, climb the towers, and imagine what life was like within the fortress centuries ago.
