It was from Palamidi castle that the liberation of the city by the Turks began, after a long siege. On the night of 29th November 1822, a group of Greek warriors led by Staikos Staikopoulos captured Palamidi using surprise. The first to step his foot into the fortress was Dimitrios Moschonissiotis, invading from the “Achilleas” bastion.
