Monemvasía The Essential
Monemvassía is one of the most beautiful medieval cities in Europe; it is intact and could have come straight out of a Byzantine fresco. This silent town facing the sea is half hidden behind a steep rock face linked to the mainland by a causeway, in a particularly spectacular site. The positive result of this isolation is that the town has been spared the torments of modernity. Approaching Monemvassía can feel like reaching the world's end.
