Pende Adelphia bastion

Pende Adelphia bastiongallery
The Bastion of "Pende Adelphia" (the five brothers) is the only remaining bastion of Acronauplia (Old Nafplio). The other bastions of the old town were demolished and are not present today. The fortification owns its name to the five, equally big, cannons that are still standing today. The cannons point to the sea and form strong defensive position together with the Bourtzi island fortress. It is unknown if the bastion was built from Venetians or the Ottomans.

Pende Adelphia offers beautiful view to the sea, the sunset, the harbor and the Bourtzi castle. The inner part is flat and raised above the surrounding grounds. There are benches and trees - a good relax opportunity. The curious visitors can explore the cannons, the walls and few staircases.

At the seafront there are tavernas and cafes. Some of the restaurants have mini private piers for small boats - good opportunity if you anchored your yacht in the dipper sea.
