A living, breathing fort town is Monemvasia, linked to the Peloponnese mainland by a causeway. Originally it was built in the 6th century, changing hands between Ottomans and Venetians many times with Byzantine churches in its midst. While it is more touristic than other areas on the Peloponnese, it is worth visiting for the beautiful restoration of its medieval buildings and its reputation as a centre of art and culture.
