MONEMVASIA, Greece
Night scene of the "rock of Monemvasia"
Night scene of the "rock of Monemvasia" May 29, 2012. Monemvasia is located in the southeastern Peloponnese some 300 kms from Athens and 95 kms southeast from Sparta, capital of Laconia province. Its name derives from two Greek words, mone and emvassi, meaning "single entrance". The Byzantine fortress town of Monemvasia has been referred to variously throughout the ages as the 'Gibraltar of the East', or the 'Castle above the Clouds'. It is situated on a small islet linked to the mainland by a causeway and bridge, separated from the mainland by a major earthquake in 337 A.D.
