Photographer's Note

Monemvasia, called Gibraltar of Greece, is a huge rock rising from the sea off the coast of the Peloponnese, connected to the mainland by a narrow causeway.
From the village of Gefyra, located on the mainland, you can see a huge rock "thrown" into the sea.
It is impressive with steep cliffs over 300 meters high.
The name Monemvasia comes from the words "moni emvasis" which means single entrance. There is really only one gate leading to the fortified old town and a fortress on the top of the rock.
