Nafpaktos, a charming coastal town in Greece

offers a delightful experience for visitors and tourists alike. Nestled on the northern coast of the Gulf of Corinth, this picturesque destination boasts a rich history and a scenic landscape that make it a compelling place to explore.

Visitors can wander through the town’s narrow, cobblestone streets, lined with colorful buildings and traditional tavernas. All the streets lead to the port, the smallest and, maybe, most beautiful in the Mediterranean Sea!

At the eastern tower there is the old lighthouse and the Fethiye Tzami (mosque) of 1499. The built-in marble plaque reminds us of the famous sea battle of 1571.

At the western part and next to the cannons targeting the sea, there are the statues of the legendary captain Giorgos Anemogiannis and of the famous Spanish writer Miguel de Cervantes.

Nafpaktos’ well-preserved Venetian castle, overlooking the town and the sea, is a must-see historical site, offering panoramic views and a glimpse into the town’s medieval past.

Nafpaktos also hosts various cultural events and festivals, providing insight into Greek traditions and adding vibrancy to the town’s atmosphere. The local cuisine is a treat for food enthusiasts, with fresh seafood and traditional Greek dishes available in the waterfront restaurants.

Whether you’re interested in history, nature, or simply unwinding by the sea, Nafpaktos has something to offer every traveler seeking an authentic Greek experience.
