The enchanting citadel
Proud beauty that speaks for itself. It captures your gaze, then your heart.
You can view it at a distance from Rio, surrounded by lush forest and crowned by an imposing medieval fortification. One visit is enough to win you over with its unsullied beauty and the cultural aura exuded by its ever-present historic monuments. Nafpaktos invites you to get to know it and its immediate surrounds and then make it a springboard for exciting experiences at sea, in nearby mountain villages and on rambles through its luxuriant nature.
The impregnable castle
A staunch and silent witness to the long and colourful history of this land, the well preserved Venetian Castle commands pride of place at the top of the hill, holding sway over the entire town. The view from the ramparts of this sturdy medieval fortress is quite breathtaking, encompassing as it does a much more contemporary feat of engineering brilliance in the Corinthian gulf, the Bridge of Rio-Antirio; its majestic lines a triumph of aesthetics. Your vantage point also makes for quite a romantic mood, picking out the colourful yachts and sailing boats on the sea below.
