Monemvasia is the optimal destination to experience deep reverence during Easter in a whimsical fairytale setting.
It is not only the imposing or utterly impressive background of the Castle Town during the Holy Week that creates such a dreamy ambience.
It is also the byzantine magnificence exuded from every part of the castle; from the psalms in churches that date back to the 6th century AD – like Elkomenos Christos – and retain intact their religious character throughout the centuries to the procession of the bier of Christ along the narrow back streets, which under the shadow of the rock and thousands of lit candles traverses “Voltes” enlivening old trails of history, to finally end up to Ano Polis and the amazing church, Agia Sophia.
Easter in Monemvasia is undoubtedly an experience to remember.
