Above Nafplio there is the Akronafplion which contains constructions named after the ancient inventor Palamedes of the 13C BC. The Palamidi fortress stands out along the side of the mountain built by the Venetian governor Sagreda in 1711. After a 10 day siege in 1715 it was taken by the Turks. Venetians built the castles on the summit which can be visited.
