Called the Gibraltar of the Aegean, Monemvasia is situated off the south east coast of mainland Greece. It is truly an amazing sight. As you approach from over the hills you are hit with this image of an enormous mountain in the sea, connected to land only by a narrow bridge. From the land it looks like just a mountain and if you look more closely you may see a tiny church perched on the top. However if you cross the bridge and walk around the side of the mountain you will suddenly come to a wall stretching from the sea to the mountain. Behind the wall is an ancient town protected from all sides by sea, wall and mountain... It is a wonderful place and one of the must see places in this world...
