Monemvasia, Greece Overview
The island of Monemvasia was separated from the mainland by an earthquake in 375 AD. The majority of the island’s area is a plateau about 100 metres above sea level, and the town of the same name is built on the slope to the south-east of the rock, overlooking Palaia Monemvasia bay. Many of the streets are narrow and fit only for pedestrians. A small hamlet of about 10 houses lies to the northwest.
Monemvasia is a town and a municipality in Laconia, Greece. The town is located on a small island off the east coast of the Peloponnese.

There's this very hauntingly strange large rock off the southern tip of Lakonia, in the Peloponnese, Greece. This island rock has so much history I saw a World War II ghost as I tossed and turned in my sleep, and I'm not a ghost believer. So there you go.

Monemvasia - Greece Gibraltar
Monemwazja często była opisywana jako Gibraltar Grecji. Zajmuje ogromną nagą skałę, która wznosi się stromo i ponuro nad morze na wschodnim brzegu południowego cypla Peloponezu. Zawdzięcza ona swoją nazwę jedynej drodze, którą można się dostać na wyspę. Średniowieczne miasto ma tylko kilku mieszkańców.
