Walking through Monemvasia
Updated: Nov 20, 2019
The basic journey begins with entering the main gate of the Lower Town. On the left side, there stands the birth-house of the famous Greek poet Giannis Ritsos.
After a walk on the first narrow traditional street with shops, the visitor reaches the main square, where the Church of Christos Elkomenos and the Monemvasia Archaeological Collection are located. From the central square, a cobbled narrow street leads to the Upper Town, from which the view to the old town is stunning.
