Overview

At the fare end of the Peloponnese , a small , dark island juts out of the sea. A thin strip of land inks it with the mainland at Yefira the bridge as this coastal psarohori Fishing village has come to be known. The Fort City of Monemvasia with its one and only gate as its name suggests  (Moni =sole ,Emvasia = Entrance) turns a dream into reality. That is where Byzantium and the Middle Ages joined hands to bring Time to a standstill.  This fortress-state , in southern Laconia proves the Byzantine-Venetian influence in the Peloponnese.
