The Bourtzi fortress which guards the harbor. In the 19th century this is where the executioners for the prison at the Palamidi fortess lived since it was bad luck to have them live in the city itself. Later it became a hotel. Now excursion boats take you out to explore the fortress. The Bourtzi is like the mascot of Nafplio. It is the most photographed place in town if not the whole Peloponessos.
