Monemvasia (Gr: Μονεμβασία) is a well-known Byzantine fortress located off the east coast of the Peloponnese in the prefecture of Laconia, Greece. It is of importance to the church as within its fortress walls remain many Byzantine church structures and old icons of historical importance. The name of this town is derived from two Greek words, mone and emvassia meaning a "single entrance."
