The castle is built on a very nice place. Really big, with lots of remains. The view is outstanding. Really deserves a visit.

Driving up is slightly hair raising but the views and history are mind boggling. The entry fee is a trivial 1 euro. Go there and look around - you won't be disappointed.

A marvellous place to have drinks and watch the sunset! It has a lot of coffee houses around for all kinds of tastes and if you're into walking make sure to get through the stone gate and go to the hidden beach behind!

The fort is well preserved and impressive in size and setting. There is not much to discover inside ; the exhibition area is very basic and the audio visual hall is not operational. Awesome scenery and view from top.

The landmark of Nafpaktos, picturesque and close to the city. Entrance fee for adults is €2.00 definitely worth it, half for children and adults over 65. Bring along your camera for beautiful photos.
