This is a Medieval Castle Town, exclusively carved on the slopes of a rock. This fantastic place was originally constructed in the Medieval Ages and has been continuously inhabited since then. Today most of the old mansions have been converted into guesthouses and boutique hotels.
Outside the Rock, there is a new modern town with many tourist facilities. Holidays in Monemvasia can be combined with day trips to Gythio, Mystras, Neapolis and other regions of south Peloponnese.
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. This is how its name came out, meaning a single passage.
A walk around the paved streets of the castle town is like a trip back in time. See the elegant stone mansions and the Byzantine churches, such as the church of Agia Sofia and Christ Elkomenos. Do not also miss the breathtaking sea view from the top of the Castle during your Monemvasia holidays.
Things to do in the region include sightseeing and swimming on the calm crystal clear beaches.
