Troizinia-Methana (Greek: Τροιζηνία-Μέθανα) is a municipality in the Islands regional unit, Attica, Greece. The seat of the municipality is the town Galatas.[2]

The municipality was formed at the 2011 local government reform by the merger of the two former municipalities Methana and Troizina, that became municipal units.[2] Initially named Troizinia, in January 2014 the municipality was renamed Troizinia-Methana.[3] The municipality has an area of 240.858 km2.[4]


The province of Troizinia (Greek: Επαρχία Τροιζηνίας) was one of the provinces of the Piraeus Prefecture. Its territory corresponded with that of the current municipalities Troizinia and Poros.[5] It was abolished in 2006.
