Whether or not you wish to buy Nafplio's most popular souvenir item – komboloï (worry beads) – at the shop below, it's well worth popping into the incense-scented museum upstairs to learn what distinguishes the komboloï from prayer beads and why the amber-mastic mix is so special. You may spot tiny wooden skulls, black coral inlaid with mother-of-pearl and carved ivory among the adjacent collection of prayer beads belonging to assorted religions.
