My trip to the Peloponnese(12)- National Gallery of Nafplio.

After walking a bit further from the old city centre...
...we reached the National Gallery of Nafplio, an amazing building with a great collection of paintings.
At the time we were there they were exhibiting paintings that depict heroes and scenes from the 1821 Independence Revolution of Greece against the Turks so I think this blog post is really interesting as it coincides with tomorrow's celebration here in Greece.









































I love the details of these paintings.
