View of Nafplios from the citadel
Built by the Venetians in only three years, the huge complex was finished in 1714 and (embarrassingly) captured by the Turks in 1715. It overlooks the port of Nafplios and the tiny island fortress of Bourtzi at the harbour mouth, built by the Turks. After exploring for an hour, we bussed back to the boat for lovely lunch before heading off southwards to Monemvasia. The sea was still kicking up a bit and our stabilisers worked hard to earn their keep.
