Nafpaktos, old town in a winter rainy day.
"Naupactus or Nafpaktos (Greek: Ναύπακτος, rarely Έπαχτος, Latin: Naupactus or Naupactos; Turkish: İnebahtı; Italian, Spanish and Portuguese: Lepanto), is the second largest town in the prefecture of Aetolia-Acarnania, Greece, situated on a bay on the north side of the straits of Lepanto. The harbour, once the best on the northern coast of the Corinthian Gulf, is accessible only to the smallest craft. The origin of Naupactus comes from the two Greek words: ναύς naus ship, boat and πήγνυμι pêgnumi, pegnymi builder, fixer. Distance from Patras is about 15 km NE and about 215 km NW of Athens with the new Rio-Antirio bridge. Other distances are WSW of Amfissa, W of Itea and Delphi, NE of Antirio and GR-5/E55, E of Messolonghi and SE of Agrinio. The Mornos river is a few kilometres ENE which is also the prefectural boundary with Phokida. Naupactus is an episcopal see. In Greek legend it appears as the place where the Heraclidae built a fleet to invade the Peloponnesus."
