PALAMIDI CASTLE VIEW
Palamidi is a fortress in the town of Nafplio built by the Venetians in early 18th century. The hill offers good shelter from meltemi. You can drop an anchor and tie a line to the rocks ashore.
Nafplio was the first capital of Modern Greece. It is a town with considerable ancient and modern history.
Today it is a busy and rather grubby commercial harbour, but it does offer a safe mooring for a visit to the old town of this former capital of the Greek state and its wonderfully sited Venetian castle. The harbour is secure in most winds. The holding in the harbour is good. There are no facilities on the quay.
