Fortress Palamidi, Nafplio

4.6
Built by the Venetians as a means of defending the city, Fortress Palamidi presides over Nafplio from above. The Venetians built the fortress between 1711 and 1714, during their second occupation of the area. The fortress proved unsuccessful at protecting against invasion, however, and was taken over by the Turks in 1715 and then the Greeks in 1822. You can climb more than 900 steps from the town to the top of the fortress. At 216 m (709 ft) above town, the view of Nafplio and the gulf is your reward. Use the brochure provided at the entrance as your map for a self-guided tour.

  • Want to strike-let people free! Then your capitalist bosses will pay more attention to your requirements. We were upset and disappointed, as arriving, found on the gate an inscription that the fortress is closed. Down with wildness!

  • Incredible views all within, and the outer of as seen from the city. Specially at night! In the prison of the ours Kolokotroni maybe not kataferete to join, although I have read that history is not on the point that we indicate it is. However such a visit in Budapest, is arrived! Natural was the Palamidi with nice clothes and shoes, and enough water. The best entrance time that is. In most of the Egyptian entry that does €8, things that it's difficult enough the Kings to the hotel, you will not have to pay to see the our heritage. Well not allowed the pets, as one point, rational vrisko if you not to let her kapou is krima to chaseis the visit.
