The following group of pictures are of a city on the Peloponnese. Its name is Nafplio.  It became the capital of Greece in 1821 when the Greeks drove the Ottoman forces (Turkey) from their country after a 1000 year conquest.  There is a large Fortress on a hill behind the city that was built in the 1700's and so it is relativly new. You can climb up to the fortress from the city along a stairpath with 999 steps, or you can drive around to the back and walk in.  It is a beautiful city with a lot of history.
