Staikopoulos park in Nafplio

There are several parks in Nafplio and in the Staikopoulos park is a statue of Staikos Staikopoulos who in 1822 conquered the Palamidi castle from the Turks. Another heroine from the Greek war of independence is Bouboulina, who used her wealth to convert her trading ships into a war fleet to fight against the Turks and was also commander of one of her own ships, the Agamemnon. In 1821 she was personally in charge of the siege of Nafplio and ultimately ensured that Nafplio was liberated.
