I.N. St. Spyridon “One of the darkest pages of modern Greek history unfolded outside the entrance of Agios Spyridon. Here, in the early hours of September 27, 1831, Ioannis Kapodistrias was assassinated by Georgios and Konstantinos Mavromichalis from Mania. “
In the castle of Palamidi is the prison of the old man of Moria. In the background on the left is the entrance of the dungeon, which when you go down the stone steps out of emotion and awe catches your breath. The stone steps lead to the place, where with his tsarouchia the iron-clad old man of Moria dug the rock out of his anger for the Kotzabasides.
The cobbled cobbled path in Palamidi outside the prison of Kolokotronis makes us shiver, thinking here walked the old man of Morias chained by the Kontzambasides, who never left our lives, we look at it for a long time and think a lot πίσω church, in the gallery where people in yellow can be seen
Palamidi is one of the most beautiful castles in Greece and the largest and best preserved fortress complex of the Venetian occupation “
