They will restore the Acronauplia Fortress

The Acronauplia fortress It is one of the most important monuments in the city of Nafplio which in recent years has been treated more as a tourist attraction than an archaeological site, which will soon change thanks to a decision taken by the 25th Ephorate for Byzantine Antiquities, which will begin to carry out restoration works in order to show the objective.

Acronauplia, also know as His Kale (Interior Castle), is the oldest part of the city of Nafplio (Greece) and was a city in itself until the 13th century. With the arrival of francs and venetians, became part of the fortifications of the city and during the years 1936 and 1956, it was used as a political prison.

Since that year, the Greek government decided that due to its location, it would be a great attraction for tourism, so a large hotel complex was built (Xenia) that we still find there.

The Acronauplia fortress It is the largest of the three castles found in Nafplio and rises above the old part of the city, at the same time that it was known at the time as the Acropolis of Nafplio.

In this fortress we can find the passage of several centuries, as the lower section of walls dates back to the Bronze Age, while most of the remaining structures were built by what Venetians in the 15th century.

After studying History at the University and after many previous tests, Red Historia was born, a project that emerged as a means of dissemination where you can find the most important news about archeology, history and humanities, as well as articles of interest, curiosities and much more. In short, a meeting point for everyone where they can share information and continue learning.
