Photographs that I took of the beautiful Venetian and Neoclassical style buildings in the small town of Nafplio, Greece. Many of the buildings are getting a ‘facelift’ as you can see in the photographs, and it was nice to see some work being done on them, instead of letting the buildings fall into disrepair.
Small towns like Nafplio have some of the prettiest store fronts that you’ll ever see. I loved the architecture of many of the buildings here, and there were so many things to shoot!
Μικρές πόλεις όπως το Ναύπλιο έχει μερικά από τα ομορφότερα προσόψεις καταστημάτων. Μου άρεσε πολύ η αρχιτεκτονική του Ναφπλιου, και είναι ένα εξαιρετικό μέρος για να βγάλετε φωτογραφίες!
The small town of Nafplio is located on the eastern side of the Peloponnese. It is the capital of the prefecture of Argolida. The town is a photographers dream with so many things to take photographs of. The town has so much history, and it’s interesting to note that Nafplio was Greece’s capital from 1828-1833. It’s a great place to get away on the weekend especially for those of us who live in a concrete jungle like Athens.
Last weekend, I visited the small town of Nafplio which is located in the Eastern Peloponnese, it’s not a far drive from Athens which is why many Athenians like to head here for the weekend. I have been to Nafplio many years ago, but I don’t remember too much. This time I decided that I was going to take it in more and spend more time exploring and even walk up those 999 steps that lead to the fortress of Palamidi. The climb up was a difficult one for me because I’m not an athlete. However, the view was breathtaking and it was worthwhile even though it took me three days to recover. My poor legs 😦
