MonemvasiaThe poet Ritsos 'stone ship' stoically stands on
the southern tip of Laconia ready to take you on a fanciful voyage
through time and history.
Monemvasia its formal name, Monemvasia its poetic version, Monemvasia to
the locals, Malvouazi to the Franks and Malmsy to the English. No
matter how it is named this beautiful seaside village got its name
because the castle had only one entrance ('moni emvasi').
