Almost a month ago we had the pleasure of visiting Monemvasia, a small island -and town- off the east coast of the Peloponnese and yet another magical place where the feeling of having been transported back through time is intense.
I haven't sorted and edited most photos yet -there are numerous- but these are a sneak peek of what this amazing place looks like.
Upon entering the medieval town you imediately start meandering through narrow little alleyways as seen in the pictures. The feeling is breath-taking and treking up to the fortress on the top of the hill is an experience not to be missed.
I will be back with more photos and information about Monemvasia - also known as Malvasia.
In the meantime, here are some links to incredible photos, breathtaking views and history, some more amazing history, all sorts of info on modern-day Monemvasia and maps of the island and the city, both Byzantine and modern.
