Church of Agios Spiridonas
A wonderful church and most significant religious structure of Nafplion. Dressed in glorious byzantine paintings with beautiful colors and unique depictions. The church is mainly recognized for an incident that took place in 1831, when Ioannis Kapodistrias, the first governor at the time, was assassinated by two men when visiting the church. The first bullet which did not manage to kill him remains preserved in a wall (in a glass frame) till this very day. This was the first political assassination in Greece.
Nafplion is a wonderful town and an authentic Greek experience! I would suggest entering the port in the afternoon, strolling the alleys of the old town, enjoying dinner and finally visiting the Palamidi fortress early in the morning to avoid the extreme early afternoon heat. Visit the castles then hop onboard and sail to one of the various beautiful beaches for a refreshing swim!
