In recent years, guided tours of the castle of Monemvasia are available. They are given by an experienced guide-archaeologist, and offer the visitors the chance to not only see the castle, but also to learn its history, get to know its important monuments and become a part of the impressive history of Monemvasia. We invite you to a unique walking tour through the meandrous narrow streets of the old town, the fortress walls and the churches, to bring back to life the course of the mythical castle-town throughout the centuries.
The Byzantines, the Venetians, the Ottomans, merchants from the West and the East, passed by Monemvasia leaving their marks on the buildings, the paved streets and the churches, giving it a cosmopolitan air.
We will get acquainted with the wealth, the power and the glory of the town, as well as the invasions, piracy and the difficulties of the life on the rock.
Gazing at Myrtoo Sea below the imposing rock, we will relive the stories and the legends, listen to poems written about this place, take a taste of magical Monemvasia.
Local history, architecture and culture will be explained during the tour. It is also included a refreshing stop, with a little tasting of local products (olive oil, wine, traditional sweets, etc.).
