The castle of Bourtzi is located in the middle of the harbour of Nafplio. The Venetians completed its fortification in 1473 to protect the city from pirates and invaders from the sea. Since then, it is mainly a tourist attraction hosting occasionally parts of the Summer Music Festival ~ www.facebook.com/discoverpeloponnese?fref=photo
