Old-World Doors of Monemvasia

Upscale yet down to earth, Monemvasia offers visitors old-world charm with the convenience of modern amenities. Step through the front entrance to the medieval fortress and find cobbled lanes, old stone buildings, and expansive views of the Myrtoan Sea. It’s easy to get lost in the maze of narrow paths carved into the side of this giant rock joined to Peloponnese by a restored causeway.

When last in Monemvasia, we spent time roaming the lower village. I focused on finding interesting doors and architecture, my husband on learning the history of the fortress. Below are a few of the many interesting doors I discovered along the way.
