Something that I didn't know, was that Cervantes fought in the battleship, that took place in Nafpaktos in 1571 ( the European forces against Turkey ) and got injured. The statue is places in a good place.

This is a Venetian period, walled port. Small cafes, restaurants, really not that touristy. Maybe I'm missing something or perhaps misunderstood, but I can't figure out the Cervantes connection. Nice statue. The itinerary

The statue is locked in the old port. I don't think it is that significant. I like the location and the surrounding property. That is what is charming and interesting. The statue is just there.

Umm, it's a statue. It's in nice shape and the area is well maintained. There are several caffeine's nearby and you can sit outside near the marina as well.

Standing in the tiny, lovely port - it is still just a statue, and not even sure how it rates as an attraction. So, Cervantes (author of Don Quixote) was here...

The statue is located by the harbor... And is one of several monuments located by the harbor and memorials worthy of a look!
