Nauplia
 
Nauplia

Nauplia or Nafplion in the Peloponnese in Greece, is a seaport town that has expanded up the hillsides near the north end of the Argolic Gulf. The first capital city of independent Greece in 1823, Nauplia is today a very attractive.

==== NAUPLIA - ATTRACTION

The narrow streets of the old town are lined with Venetian, neo-classical and Ottoman buildings, and dramatically overlooking it all is the towering but graceful Palamidi Fortress perched on a 216 metre outcrop to the northwest.

Visit he Akronafplia Fortress, where the town was located up to the arrival of the Venetians. It has views down onto the red-tile roofs of the old town, and up to its awe-inspiring neighbour, the Palamidi Fortress. Three separate fortresses are located in Palamidi, built between 1711 and 1714, and the whole complex cascades powerfully, yet elegantly, from the pinnacle of its hilltop down towards the town below. It is one of the most interesting and fascinating fortresses you will ever visit, and its beauty is enhanced in spring time by the wild flowers decking its interior and clinging to its cliff sides amongst the rocks and the huge cacti.
