The old town of Monemvasia was beckoning to me, so one Sunday afternoon, on my way back from Elafonisos, I made a stop.
One single way inside the castle walls through the main gate. One single, Byzantine trail to lead you to the heart of the Old Town, at the central square, with the looming Church of Christos Elkomenos and the old cannon. From there on, from the edge of the square, your eyes wander off to the vast sea, while behind you stands an old town, so unique in character.
In Greece we have this wonderful luxury of combining flavors with images. It’s a luxury, but also a way of life, and in Monemvasia you can combine both wonderfully.
Translation from Greek to English: Maria Coveou
and she feels like she never left.
The exploration continues.
Have you ever been in Monvemvasia?
