Monemvasia, –the so-called “Gibraltar of the East”–, founded by the Byzantines in the sixth century and is located on the south-eastern coast of the Peloponnese. The Castletown is nestled at the edge of a rock and offers an unparalleled opportunity to travel back in the medieval times!
By walking in this picturesque town you become part of its history which was once occupied by the Byzantines, the Venetians, and the Ottoman Turks.
A visit to the rare octagon-shaped Byzantine church of Agia Sofia on the upper town quarters is a must as it offers breathtaking views of the Aegean Sea. Except the atmosphere and unique landscape, Monemvasia offers unique architecture, enjoyable bars and taverns and the opportunity for taking some truly startling photos.
The moto tour will continue further south, towards the Castania Cave system. An impressive cave complex with spectacular stalactites and stalagmites and the petrified palm forest of Agia Marina. The petrified logs, the rocky terrain and the blue of the sea create a canvas of unparalleled beauty.
Finally you will visit the town of Sparta famous from its King Leonidas. You will visit the statue of the King where we will take pictures and then move on to the Castletown of Mystras where the last emperor of the Byzantine Empire, Constantine Paleologos, was crowned king. A last stop at the museum of Olive Oil will offer a unique insight in one of the best products Greece has to offer.
