The Church of Agios Spyridon in Nafplio is located in the Old Town and was built in 1702 during the Venetian occupation. The church has a dome and bell tower and its interior is plain and dark and not as decorative as other Orthodox churches...More

I have a dear friend named Spiro who was born not far from here, so I had to stop in and light a candle to honor him and his family. A bullet hole in the front of the building supposedly has been there since the...More

Except for the beautiful wallpaintings, there is not much more to see. No pictures allowed inside! The building itself is not spectacular
