Newer looking building. 2 floors. Pleasent staff. Pictures have descriptions in Greek and English. Explaining type of material use, type of canvas, why picture taken. Little history with picture. Amazing detail.

A pleasant 1/2 hour can be spent wandering around the 2 levels of the gallery. They have a permanent section on 1st floor and a temporary exhibition on the ground floor. Both were good and give an appreciation of the changing fortunes of Nafplio from...More
