Akronafplia Fortress

Fortress in Nafplio

Rising above the old part of town, the Akronafplia fortress is the oldest of Nafplio’s three castles. The lower sections of the walls date back to the Bronze Age; the most recent were built by the Venetians in the 15th century and the town was restricted to within its walls at the time. There’s a lift up to the fortress from Plateia Politikou Nosokomeiou.
