Monemvasía Recommended Recommended : Michelin's recommendations


Monemvassía is one of the most beautiful medieval cities in Europe; it is intact and could have come straight out of a Byzantine fresco.

The positive result of this isolation is that the town has been spared the torments of modernity. Approaching Monemvassía can feel like reaching the world's end.
