Monemvasia

11 Pins5 Followers
Monemvasia’s name (Greek: Μονεμβασία) derives from two Greek words, ”mone” and ”emvasi”, meaning “single entrance”. Its Italian form, Malvasia, gave its name to Malmsey wine. Monemvasia’s nickname is the Gibraltar of the East or The Rock. The town itself is located on a small island off the east coast of the Peloponnese and is linked to the mainland by a short causeway 200 meters in length.
