Greece 2017 (part V): Nafplio

Nafplio, Greece:

The water castle of Bourtzi

The water castle of Bourtzi

From Epidaurus, the road passed through the small seaport town of Nafplio.

Although Nafplio has only around 15,000 inhabitants, it was the capital of Greece from 1821 to 1834. I think it must be nice to spend an entire day here, but I had only 30 minutes to walk along the harbour and enjoy the scenery. The town is protected by the castles of Palamidi and Bourtzi, which can both be seen from the Philellinon Square.

Following this short stop in Nafplio, the bus continued north to the famous ruins of Mycenae.
