Eua or Eva is an archaeological location in the regional unit of Argolis in the Peloponnese, Greece. It is mentioned as a village by Pausanias and its name is also attested by archaeological findings. It is located in the valley of the river Tanos (ancient Tanaos), below the north-eastern slopes of the Parnon mountain range, between the modern towns of Astros and Kato Doliana. It is close to the site of the Byzantine Monastery of Loukou. Pausanias says that in Eua there was a hieron (sanctuary) of the physician Polemocrates. Excavations that started in the area in 1980 revealed the ruins of the villa of Herodes Atticus (2nd cenctury AD). Spectacular findings came to light, among them mosaics, inscriptions, statues and other works of art. In Pausanias there is no account of this magnificent villa, possibly because he had not visited the area. The ancient sanctuary of Polemocrates has not been located, but it is believed that it was in the place today occupied by the nearby monastery.

According to legend it was founded in 1600 BC by some of the first Dorian invaders of the Peloponnese. Scholarly research finds that the village has been continuously occupied since antiquity. The recent unearthing of ancient graves (dates still to be determined) do lend at least a little credence to the legend. Kiveri has a predominantly agricultural economy revolving around the growth and distribution of oranges and olives. There is also a small fishing industry.

The strong Karstic springs remained; the lake, diminished to a silt lagoon by the 19th century, has vanished.

Palamidi

Located at 37.35, 22.77 (Lat. / Lng.), less than 15 mi away.
More reading: Wikipedia Article

Palamidi is a fortress to the east of the Acronauplia in the town of Nafplio in the Peloponnese region of southern Greece. Nestled on the crest of a 216-metre high hill, the fortress was built by the Venetians during their second occupation of the area (1686–1715). The fortress was a very large and ambitious project, but was finished within a relatively short period from 1711 until 1714. It is a typical baroque fortress based on the plans of the engineers Giaxich and Lasalle. In 1715 it was captured by the Turks and remained under their control until 1822, when it was captured by the Greeks. The bastions of the fortress were originally named after the Greek Proveditori. However, when the Ottoman Empire came around, they captured the castle and town and the bastions were given Turkish names. Lastly, when the Greeks overthrew the Turks the bastions were renamed after Greek saints. One of the bastions, called the "Miltiades," was used as the prison cell of Theodoros Kolokotronis, a hero of the Greek Revolution. The fortress commands an impressive view over the Argolic Gulf, the city of Náfplio and the surrounding country. There are 857 steps in the winding stair from the town to the fortress(APPROX). However, to reach the top of the fortress there are over one thousand. Locals in the town of Nafplion will say there are 999 steps to the top of the castle, and specials can be found on menus that incorporate this number to catch a tourist's eye.
