Description

Old Town

Naflpio, one of the most beautiful towns not only in the Peloponese, but in all of Greece, can boast its Old Town which seduces visitors no matter how many times they find themselves wandering its back streets.

Narrow, cobbled streets and characteristic buildings of Venetian architecture, small balconies, colourful corners and blooming flowers are ''captured'' by your camera lens. Little streets, small shops with local products, souvenirs and gifts, cafes and traditional taverns entice you to lose yourself in their cosy interiors.

The major attractions ''hiding'' in the heart of the Old Town are Syntagma Square (one of the main spots in the town) with the Archaeological Museum, Parliament Building, Trianon, Theodoros Kolokotronis residence, the palace of Ioannis Kapodistrias and the church of Agios Georgios.

Equally remarkable monuments are the church of Agios Spyridonas (where the first governor of Greece, Ioannis Kapodistrias, was murdered), Trion Ierarhon Square with the Town Hall, the Governor or Palace and Filellinon Square with the Filellinon monument dedicated to the French Philhellene who fought and sacrificed for the liberation of Greece.
