Perhaps the best known and most spectacular place to visit someone in Methana is the crater of the volcano near the village of Kameni Chora, 4.5 km north of Vathi. The ancient crater has a circumference of 150 meters and a depth of 60 meters. You can visit the cave of Methana also known as Peristerion cave in Steno.

The cave has a length of 250 meters and is divided into 3 chambers. In the same area is Favieros castle of the Medieval era. Also, at the plateau Throni can be seen the ruins of the fortifications, one mill of the 3rd century and a tower of the 4th century. There, was discovered an ancient throne with a Doric inscription which is housed today in the Archaeological Museum of Poros. On the hill of St. Constantine and Helen, stands the Mycenaean settlement of the 14th century BC. In Palaiokastro, you can visit the ancient citadel, and see part of the wall dating back to the Peloponnesian war. Near the village Kipseli, is the ancient citadel, where there is an ancient inscription referring to Poseidon.
