Stop At: Monemvasia Fortress

Your visit to Monemvasia will be a unique experience to travel back in time, in a castle-town with 15 centuries-old history, that is still inhabited. The so-called 'Gibraltar of the East', a small rocky island linked to the mainland through a short causeway, is full of myths and tales and has inspired great artists. Upon entering the gate of the Lower town, you will find yourselves in what looks like a magnificent scenery. Walking around the cobbled streets you will get acquainted to the history of this city that was founded by the Byzantine emperor, and all its consequent rulers: The Pope, the Franks, the Venetians and the Ottomans. You will learn everything about its significant port that made Monemvasia one of the richest and most cosmopolitan towns of the Mediterranean and the wine produced there, that made it famous all over Europe. You will not miss the chance to visit some of the castle's 46 churches.
