From the first steps into the castle of the Medieval town of Monemvasia (it means “Sole Entrance”) you ‘ll be left astonished by its beauty and you’ ll start wondering which way to go. Here, the road to the left leads above of the entrance, to the house of one of the greatest Greek poets, Giannis (or Yannis) Ritsos, the poet of “Romiosini”.
The road in the middle is the “central” road of Monemvasia (Lakonia, Peloponnese, Greece), the one that leads to its “heart”. Saying “central” I don’t mean any avenue, it’s a stone alley about 3 metres wide. The alley to the right leads deeper inside the “heart” of the “castletown” and finally to the sea. Whatever your choice might be, you ‘ll see dozens of very narrow alleys going up and down, creating the most enchanting labyrinth you’ll see in your life.
