A Hidden 'Fortress Town' perched on an island in Greece.. Not enough curious? Words cannot describe the beauty of this place..
This time our destination is magnificent Monemvasia!
Monemvasia is an impressive castle town in south eastern Peloponnese. This town was constructed invisible from the mainland to avoid enemy attacks. It can be seen only from the sea and only a narrow pathway connects it to the mainland. A walk around the paved streets of the castle town is like a trip back in time. Τhe elegant stone mansions and the Byzantine churches, such as the church of Agia Sofia and of Christ Elkomenos are distinguished in the Castle.
You will have 3 hours to visit the castle, walk around the beautiful town with its characteristic shops cozy cafes and restaurants.
