“The climb up 900 plus steps to the top of this historic fortress is worth it if you love stunning views. The Venetians built it in 1686. What’s fascinating is it was so well designed all attempts to conquer it were unsuccessful. Until the Greeks came and managed to take it over in 1822 during the Greek Revolution, surprising the world at the time. Independence was won against the Ottoman Empire. Greece was a new free state. Nafplio was named capital.”

“The low hill of Tirynth, in the 8th kilometer of road Argos-Nafplio, was continuously inhabited from the Neolithic Age to Late Antiquity. In prehistoric times, the area flourished mainly during the early and late Bronze Age. In the second phase of the EH era (2700-2200 BC) a major centre with dense population and a unique construction circular building, 27 meters in diameter, must have been here on top of the hill.                    During the Late Bronze Age, Tiryns fortified hill gradually and surrounds within the "Cyclopean" walls of the palace complex and other buildings used primarily by the ruling class as places of worship, warehouses and workshops as well as residences. In historical times, Tiryns, although it should have been in the form of an organized political community, could not compete with Argos, which destroyed it, in the first half of the 5th century, exiling its inhabitants. Opening hours for the Archaeological Site: Monday - Sunday 8:00 to 20:00”

Natural Feature
“Once again a long beach, this one is covered in fine gravel. Usually with quite few visitors, especially if you walk southeast. Also, nudism seems to be ok at the south-eastern part of the beach. The water in the northern part of the beach is quite deep, just after a couple of steps into the sea. The small white church that can be seen on the promontory, Ag. Nikolaos, can be visited by wading or swimming there.”
