Nafpaktos is a small and lovely town on the western side of Greece. Historically it is famous for the Battle of Lepanto that took place there in 1571. Rememberings of this battle are housed today at the Museum of Botsaris in Nafpaktos. The most important site in Nafpaktos includes the Venetian Castle, on top of the hill above the town, and the picturesque port with the intense Medieval feeling. The beach of Psani that starts from the port is the main beach of Nafpaktos town and a relaxing place for a swim.
