Astros is known from the 2nd Greek National Assembly that took place in April 1823. It has a population of over 2,000 and is 45km from Tripoli on the coast of the province of Kynouria. Its harbour is Paralio Astros.
The harbour of Astros climbs up a verdant hill, and it has developed to a tourist centre in recent years. The strong smell of roasted octopus will lead you to one of the picturesque taverns in the fishing harbour, whereas the blue sea will invite you for a swim.
