I'm glad I ducked in here for a brief reflection. Really beautiful church, converted from a mosque. It's not obvious that you're allowed in, but you are - just approach the unmarked doors. Remember to be courteous and cover your shoulders.

This is one of my favorite places in Nafplio. It is quiet and clean and it is peaceful - no bars or restaurants on the square to break the mood. It's no big deal, but I'm always happy when I find it!

On a side street next to the Italian deli/gelataria, where I suggest you go after the church! Beautiful inside, very ornate, dark and with a feeling of peace. Play spot the eggs! Quietly of course. No charge and anyone welcome but respectful clothing suggested, eg...More

This is a 450 years old church if I remember well. It is tremendously beautiful and the temple is made of bronze shining like gold. The moment you enter you are overpowered with respect and grantour. The painted ceiling looks awesome and some of the...More
