Photographer's Note

Monemvasia 40 church!!! The small old town consists of narrow cobbled streets and a complex network of stone houses that are clustered around the seaward side of the island and spread up the side of the massive hill. The fortress was built by the Venetians in the 16th century and the climb to the top is an exhilarating experience! An 18th century Turkish traveller said 'You can find everything you want in this city except water.The views over the old town are breath-taking and the sight of the Byzantine Church of Agia Sophia, perched precariously on the cliff, is well worth the effort!
