Monemvasia

Visit the world famous town of Monemvasia, often referred to as the "Gibraltar of Greece". Monemvasia is a powerful Medieval fortified town that is a virtual showcase of history dating back to the 13th Century.

The seaward side of this charming Byzantine fortified village has been beautifully restored over a period of 20 years, full of cobbled winding lanes and alleyways. You will have time to browse the little boutique shops for souvenirs and unique jewellery.

To get a geel for the history hidden in its stones walk right to the end of the winding cobbled alleys and about 30 minutes up the steep path to the top of the rock to see Agios Sophia, the church from where the views are breathtaking.
