A short drive away, is the Castle of Monemvassia, a fortified city situated on a steep, rocky islet connected to the mainland by a narrow strip of land, forming a natural bridge. During the middle-ages, it came under attack from many invaders, including the Normans, Franks, Venetians and Turks.

Today, it is a very popular tourist attraction with Byzantine churches, medieval houses and mansions, and numerous little shops decorating a labyrinth of paved, narrow laneways.

Monemvasia offers hotels, rooms to let, tavernas and nice beaches.
