Citadel of Acronauplia

This spot is made for romantics and photographers, offering superb views of the town, the Argolic Gulf and the surrounding countryside. The citadel of Acronauplia has four bastions corresponding to four successive periods. The first two, through which one enters, were built by the Venetians: Castel Toro, erected c 1450 (now a hotel) and the Grimani bastion, built in 1706. Further on is the Frankish section and, at the tip of the promontory, the Byzantine section constructed over the remains of ancient fortifications.
