Nafplio is the city of Peloponnese, the capital of Argolis and the main port of the eastern Peloponnese. It has about 15,000 permanent residents. It is one of the most picturesque cities in the country and was the capital of the Greek state during the period 1828 – 1833. It has been characterized as a traditional settlement.
Nafplio is known for Bourtzi, a small fort built on an island in the harbor, Palamidi, a Venetian fortress that dominates the city, Acronafplia, a Venetian fortress on the homonymous peninsula, and the murder of its first prime minister of the country Ioannis Kapodistrias.
According to Greek mythology, Nafplion founded Nafplia, which was fortified with cyclopean walls. Archaeological findings prove the existence of the city since the Mycenaean years.
Nafplio is a popular destination for the inhabitants of Attica and the Peloponnese, as it is a bit distant from both areas. The most beautiful buildings of the city are the Armansperg House (the residence of the regent of Greece) and the archaeological museum in Syntagma Square. In the city there is also an annex of the National Gallery.
