Palamidi, which remains in impeccable condition, is one of the most beautiful castles in Greece. Its construction was completed in 1714 to serve the military and naval operations of the Venetians at that time. The bastions were built gradually, with the latter being built entirely by Turks. The liberation of Nafplio from the Turks started from the castle, while Theodoros Kolokotronis was imprisoned with the false accusation of treason. Palamidi is located on the homonymous hill and you can get there by car, or by climbing the stairs leading to the castle. According to tradition, the stairs are 999 and the 1000th was broken by Kolokotronis’ horse.
