Staikopoulos Park


Staikopoulos Park is below the north-eastern wall of the Acronauplia, at the point where the Venetian land gate used to stand, and which today has been rebuilt. In the eastern section of the park a marble statue of the revolutionary hero Staikos Staikopoulos was erected in 1966. It was donated by his great granddaughter, Zacharoula Papamarkou and was created by the sculptor Nicholas. Staikos Staikopoulos was born in Zatouna in Gortinia in 1798 and he has gone down in history as ‘the conqueror of the Palamidi’. On the night of 29th November 1822, along with Dimitrios Moschonisiotis and his men, he invaded the Palamidi, an event which resulted in the surrender of the city to Theodoros Kolokotronis a few days later. For his valuable contribution to the struggle for the liberation of Greece from the Turkish yoke, Staikos Staikopoulos was awarded the rank of general. His fate, however, was ultimately tragic; as he died in Leonardo’s prisons in 1835, following a severe psychiatric illness; he was only 37 years old. He was buried in the old city graveyard, near to the chapel of Aghii Pantes. Every year, on 30th November, the anniversary of the taking of the Palamidi, the people of Nafplio honour Staikos Staikopoulos for the liberation of their city from the Turkish yoke.
