The most interesting museum in Nafpaktos is the Tower of Botsaris. Located close to the port square of Nafpaktos, this museum belongs to the Foundation of Dimitris and Egli Botsari. The tower was built in the 15th century and its architecture is impressive. It was first used as a residence of the Turkish governors but in 1829, after the liberation, it was bought by Notis Botsaris, a politician whose statue lies outside the tower. Today the tower works as a museum and hosts items from the Greek War of Independence, the Battle of Lepanto in 1571 and some rare pieces from abroad.
