Back Sightseeing The Castle of Kazarma

The Castle of Kazarma


The Acropolis of Kazarma is a relatively small fortified building located on the ancient road which connects Argos, Nafplio and Epidaurus.

Probably built by Argos, it was a quite visible border between the cities - states of Argos and Epidaurus. The Acropolis is built on a hill of 28 m. The walls (width 2.50 m, preserved height 5.20 m) constructed according to the polygonal system are probably dating from the 4th century. The Acropolis has four circular towers. The main entrance is located to the west and there is a gate to the east. It has been rebuilt during the Byzantine period. Visitors can visit the castle of Kazarma from the eastern side of the hill, where a road has been constructed. There have been no excavations.
