On one side of Nafplion descending down to the sea are the remnants of Akronafplia.

A walled castle fortification dating back to pre-classical times. Over the years it was added to by the Byzantines, Franks, Venetians, and Ottomans.

Akronafplia is the oldest of the towns' three castles and played a crucial part in the security of Nafplion from sea invaders.

Canons were placed around the fortifications for external and internal use and five of these, called "the five brothers" still remain today.

Unfortunately in the 70's the wonderful old venetion buildings were demolished making way for modern luxury hotels.
