A night in Monemvasia

Yiannis Ritsos, a famous greek poet described Monemvasia as a “stone ship” about to sail. Monemvasia means “one entrance” and one can not miss the only entrance of the city. In the entrance the flag of Byzantine Empire waves in front of the sea and to the left stands the Medieval Wall of the Castle, descending to the sea. This uniquely preserved mediaeval town is carved into the majestic grey rock like a sculpture. Here one can follow the footsteps of knights, pirates, crusaders and emperors, who all fell under the spell of this mythical place.Time stands still in the Monemvasia.

The sun was about to set when we arrived in this magical place. It was not my first and hopefully not my last visit here. We left our car outside the castle and walked the short road to its gate.

 

First thing we did was to eat. We stopped at Oinomelo which is one minute walk from the entrance. Oinomelo is a typical Greek meze place with delicious local food and great wine.

After finishing our dinner we wondered around the stone paved streets totally in love with this place.

At the end of the road under an olive tree we found two seats for the show that was about to begin.

A clear blue sky with an almost full moon diving into the sea and the sound of the waves. For an hour or so we observed stillness… the beauty of this place was mesmerizing.
