Market Day in Argos

IMG_2670 resizedA bustling outdoor market takes place in one of the squares of the ancient town of Argos in the Peloponnese twice a week. Argos is located on a fertile plain several miles inland from Nafplio, the charming port town I wrote about in my last posting. Nafplio was the historic harbor for Argos for thousands of years.

Larissa Fortress, which looms dramatically over the town, is a combination of architecture from Byzantine, Venetian and Ottoman Empire times.
