MONEMVASIA ONE

From the seaside town of Gefyra, the huge rock that hides the Byzantine town of Monemvasia in the Greek Peloponnese looks nothing more than a large rocky outcrop. But once through the door of the crenellated stone fortress wall (thirteenth century) you move right into the Middle Ages. It’s a stunning place, one of my very favourite destinations for R&R in all Greece. My pictures show Gefyra and its pretty marina, tavernas, a huge octopus hanging out to dry, etc.  Then you can see the approaches to Monemvasia itself, the entrance, and the Byzantine town within. There are shops incorporated into the old buildings, tavernas and churches all beautifully preserved, particularly the thirteenth century Cathedral of Christ in Chains, and even an original cannon! The restored Malvasia Hotel is a wonderful place to stay.
