Ναύπλιο - Μπούρτζι....Nafplio - Bourtzi

Ναύπλιο - Μπούρτζι....Nafplio - Bourtzi
...


Το Μπούρτζι ή «Καστέλι» κατά τους Ενετούς, ή «θαλασσόπυργος» κατά τον Αγώνα του 1821, είναι μικρή νησίδα μπροστά στο λιμένα του Ναυπλίου, ακριβώς απέναντι από το επάκτιο πυροβολείο των «Πέντ΄ - Αδερφιών», καλυπτόμενη πλήρως από παλαιό ενετικό Φρούριο στο οποίο οφείλει και το όνομά της.

Το Φρούριο αυτό αναγέρθηκε από τους Ενετούς μετά την αποχώρηση του Μαχμούτ Πασά το 1473, εφοδιάζοντάς το με νεώτερα πυροβόλα. Το 1502 μεταβάλλοντας οι Ενετοί με οχυρώσεις τη ΝΔ πλευρά της Ακροναυπλίας σε αυτοτελή προμαχώνα με επάλξεις («Πέντε Αδέρφια»), συνέδεσαν αυτόν με τεχνητό βραχίονα από ογκόλιθους στον οποίο και πρόσδεναν αλυσίδα που έφθανε μέχρι το Μπούρτζι για τη προφύλαξη του λιμένα και της πόλης. Εξ ου και το όνομα «Λιμένας της Αλύσου»

The castle of Bourtzi (Greek: Μπούρτζι, from Ottoman Turkish برج - burc meaning "tower"; formerly Καστέλι, Kasteli) is located in the middle of the harbour of Nafplio. The Venetians completed its fortification in 1473 to protect the city from pirates and invaders from the sea. The Greeks regained it from the Turks on June 18, 1822, from where they assisted in the siege of Nafplio. Until 1865 it served as a fortress. It was then transformed into residence of the executioners of convicts from the castle of Palamidi. From 1930 to 1970, it served as a hotel. Since then, it is mainly a tourist attraction hosting occasionally parts of the Summer Music Festival.
