The fortress on Bourdzi Islet

November’s photo depicts a familiar sight to anyone who’s cruised into the harbor at Nafplion, Greece. The fortress on Bourdzi Islet was built by the Venetians in the 15th century; since then, it’s been a prison and a tourist hotel.

Fifty-two readers submitted answers, and 35 knew the correct answer. Congratulations go to MARIE LOUISE SCUDDER of Ipswich, Massachusetts, who won the drawing.

Our thanks (and apologies) go to the reader who sent in the beautiful photo of Bourdzi.
