Welcome to Monemvasia
Α unique rock elaborated by the “sculptor” Engelados (earth-quake). A unique fortress town, a legacy of ancient Sparta, an almighty pillaz, both political and economic, of Christianity and Byzantium.
Never conquered by invaders’ assaults; only defeated by famine following long-lasting sieges.
A place that travels you through the Ages, as poet Yiannis Ritsos chanted:
… My lady Monemvasia,
my stone ship.
Thousands are your jibs and sails.
Still motionless you stand,
sailing me across the universe…
