Monemvasia description

Monemvasia name derives from two Greek words, mone and emvasia, 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 and fortress Monemvasia were founded in 583 by inhabitants of the mainland seeking refuge from the Slavic and the Avaric invasion of Greece. From the 10th century AD, Monemvasia developed into an important trade and maritime centre.

Monemvasia remained part of the Byzantine Empire until 1460, becoming the seat of an imperial governor, a landing place for Byzantine operations against the Franks, the main port of shipment for Malmsey wine, and one of the most dangerous lairs of corsairs in the Levant.

In 1971, Monemvasia became linked with the rest of the outside world through a bridge on the western side. In more recent history, the town has seen a resurgence in importance with increasing numbers of tourists visiting the site and the region. The medieval buildings have been restored, and many of them converted to hotels.
