It is the locals' favorite walk along the steep cliffs of Acronafplia and the impressive walls of Palamidi. It ends at Arvanitia Square overlooking an organized beach.
It is dedicated to the three Admirals (Codrington, De Rigny and Heiden) who devastated the Turkish-Egyptian fleet in the sea-battle of Navarone in 1826. In the centre of the square is the burial monument of Demetrius Ypsilantis, one of the leading figures in the Greek Independence war. On the west side of the square is the bronze statue of Otto von Wittelsbach, the first king of Greece.
Built in 1714, it has 8 independent bastions which are preserved in excellent condition. Later it housed a horrible prison. Access is possible by stairs or by a modern road. The view from the top of the hill is breathtaking.
