Nafpaktos

Nafpaktos is a seaside town (15m high) in the Corinthian Gulf and belongs administratively to the prefecture of Aitoloakarnania. Built between Antirrio and the estuary of Mornos River, it is one of the oldest Greek cities that has experienced periods of great prosperity and has been associated with important historical events. This is confirmed by the perfect fortification, which starts from the harbor, continues with three steep walls and ends up in the castle. It has been characterized as a traditional settlement.
