Cruises from Monemvasia
Monemvasia is located on a small peninsula off the Peloponnesian east coast in the Greek prefecture of Laconia. It is actually a medieval fortress with a town next to it and is joined to the mainland by a 200 m narrow causeway. It looks as if it has literally jumped out of the Medieval Era. In effect the Old Town and the Castle of Monemvasia has been built on a huge rock.
It is often referred to as the Gibraltar of the East, or simply the Rock.
