Photographer's Note

Nafplio was the first Greek capital after the liberation of Greece from the Ottoman Empire. Today is a small town of 15.000 inhabitants, located about 170 km from Athens. Its old part is picturesque, an ideal place for romantic walks. Nafplio is also famous for its three castles, the majestical Palamidi high up on a hill, Acronafplia lower on a diferent hill and the smallest one, Bourtzi (in the photo), a sleepless guard in the entrance of the harbour. In the photo you can see one of the boats that is used for carrying the visitors. From the Bourtzi you can have a panoramic view of the town and the other two castles. In the background on the upper left part of the picture, you can see (I hope) another castle. The castle of Argos (one of the most ancient cities of the world), homeland of Agamemnon, Chief General of the united Greek army during the Troyan War.
