Statue of Anemogiannis of Paxi

In Nafpaktos and near its port, the statue of Giorgos Anemogiannis reminds visitors of the Greek War of Independence against the Ottoman Turks. At a young age of 25, Anemogiannis tried to burn the Ottoman fleet in the harbour and was caught. He was subsequently tortured and killed by the occupiers in 1821.
