The Peristeri (Greek: Περιστέρι, literally "pigeon") is a small river in northwestern Messenia, in the western Peloponnese in Greece. It empties into the Ionian Sea.

Geography[edit]

The main branch of the river has its source in the Kyparissia Mountains, near the village Tripyla. It flows to the northwest, and meets its main tributary 3 km southwest of Kopanaki. The river continues to the west, and flows into the Gulf of Kyparissia, a bay of the Ionian Sea, in Kalo Nero.
