My trip to the Peloponnese (15)- Argos

I know I have tired you with all this trip to the Peloponnese! This is the last installment, chapter 15.But it was such an impressive trip.
On the 3rd of January 2014 we left beautiful beloved Nafplio to go to Athens.

On the way we passed through the town of Argos.
 We didn't visit the museum as there was no time.
 We only went inside the cathedral of Saint Peter.

 We then went up a snake road to Larissa Hill to visit the castle of Argos.
 The view was magical with the sea in front of us.
 The castle though was disappointing as it is just a couple of walls and is being renovated for a long time now as we were told.

 We were so high up, the air was so fresh.

And that was the last photo I took of the Peloponnese.

Αριάδνη παρ' όλο που για εμένα είναι ο τόπος μου αυτά τα μέρη, απόλαυσα το ταξίδι σου απ' την πλευρά του επισκέπτη. Νομίζω ότι είδατε όλα τα μέρη που θα άξιζε και σίγουρα είστε από τους λίγους που συμπεριέλαβαν μια έστω μικρή επίσκεψη στο Άργος. Ναι η θέα από τη Λάρισα είναι ξεχωριστή. Από την Ακρόπολη της Τίρυνθας δε θυμάμαι αν περάσατε.
Εξαιρετικές οι φωτογραφίες σου!

Καλημέρα Αριάδνη. Δυστυχώς το κάστρο έχει την ταμπέλα ανακαίνισης μόνο για το θεαθήναι και είναι κρίμα. Αν πάντως ξαναβρεθείς στα μέρη "μας" να κάνεις και μία βόλτα στους δρόμους του Άργους. Υπάρχουν απίστευτα νεοκλασσικά κτήρια που δεν φαίνονται με την πρώτη ματιά και μία Αγορά, που αν της έδιναν την προσοχή που χρειάζεται, θα έλαμπε! Καλό μήνα

Thank you for taking us along on your trip through the beauties of the Peloponnese! No, it is never tiring to see beautiful places... And I'm "tiring" everybody with my mountains, and I will do the same with Rhodes when I am there, LOL! ;)
Kalo Mina! :)
