Location and Description


The so-called Palace of Nestor lies ca. 3 km SW of Hora. It is situated on the highest point of the Ano Englianos ridge[015.04][094.33][094.30], with excellent views SW to the coast[096.21] and NE inland. Because of its location, it is also visible from almost any high ground to the N, E, and S and can even be picked out from the site of ancient Koryphasion by Voidokoilia Bay.[015.23]
