Nafpaktos, the capital of the Municipality of Nafpaktia, is a beautiful historic and picturesque town built amphitheatrically next to the sea. The beautifully preserved Venetian castle is one of the finest in the country. A site that is certainly worth of a visit. The beaches of Platanitis and Makyneia are also great for a swim. The road crossing Klokova offers a spectacular view across the City of Antirrio.

You can also enjoy the panoramic view of Antirrio from the chapel of St. George, located on the same hill, on the road to Molykreio - Agrapidokampos and the church of the Ascension in Molykreio. The theater at Makyneia is built in an excellent position from which the visitor can admire the panoramic view of the Antirrio area and the beaches of northwest Peloponnese.

Known since ancient times, Nafpaktos was the port and the military center of the Aetolian Confederacy. Due to its strategic position, it has often been the apple of discord among its conquerors. Nafpaktos is also known for the famous sea battle, during which the Turkish fleet was destroyed by the unified European forces in 1571. Miguel de Cervantes, the author of Don Quixote, took part in this battle as a soldier in a Spanish ship.

All the villages of this mountain region of Nafpaktia are breathtaking and noteworthy winter resorts as they offer many opportunities for mountain trekking with stunning treks. In the village Anavriti you can see the stalactites in the well-known cave Drakotrypa. One of the trails of the Rally Acropolis takes place in Nafpaktia. The village Platanos was inhabited by Epirots and Phanariots, who had been expelled by the Turks. There is a noteworthy Folk Art Collection in the village.
