Monemvasia – the invisible fortress in Peloponnese

TzubyCAMPERS Greece Monemvasia – the invisible fortress in Peloponnese

Monemvasia is a “must see” if you arrive on the east coast of the Peloponnese, Laconia region, Greece. The island is connected to the mainland by a short 200m long road that can be reached by car, although we recommend that you leave it in the car park at the base of the island.

The city walls and many Byzantine churches bring a special note to this mighty medieval fortress built on the south-eastern slope of the cliff, overlooking Palaia Monemvasia Bay.

The island of Monemvasia was separated from the mainland by an earthquake in 375 AD, and the access bridge between the mainland and the island was built only in 1971.
