Nauplion
(Nafplion)
Welcome to part two of my photos of Palamídi Fort, the castle that is two hundred and sixteen feet above the harbor of Nauplion. It is made up of eight bastions. These bastions were built by the Venetians to defend the city and operate independently if the ones next to them are captured. It is quit an impressive fortress, that covers the hill. It is a very impressive site and is well worth the climb.(To be honest there is a road to drive up if you are not into climbing steps in the hot Greek sun.) For a full description of the town, see the index of my Nauplion gallery.

I hope you enjoy the photos. Any comments, please E-mail me, .

As you can see there is quite a variation to how they were built. The only thing they have in common are they are made of thick stones and make a very impressive fortress to defend the city. Also as you can see they are in various states of decay. They all have names, unfortunately I didn't think to write them down. It just means I'll have to go back.
