Monemvasia, meaning “single entrance” is a Greek town on an island, accessible only by a narrow bridge. The site was once an important medieval fortress, port and trading centre on the east coast of Peloponnes. Monemvasia is walled and in 1248 withstood a 3 year siege. Inside the walls, Byzantine churches and houses remain, as well as ruins of a mighty fortress in the upper town.
