Photographer's Note

It's Leonard Cohen's passing that brought me back to my Greek pictures and I can't seem to get away from them. First Hydra, then others. Here's one from Nafplio.

---

Nafplio (or Nafplion) is an old seaport town in the Peloponnese in Greece. It was the capital of the First Hellenic Republic (1821-1834) and has a fascinating history.

With several great places to stay, some very good restaurants and a carfree city center to just wander around in, Nafplio makes a great base to explore the Argolis region of the Peleponnesos.

This picture shows the sun setting on the Bourdzi. This castle was built in the 14th century by the Venetians to defend their harbour.
