We also suggest exploring through hiking trails the beautiful nature of Monemvasia. The visitor has the choice of routes that introduce him to small traditional villages as well as the seaside. In all of them the visitor will meet small masterpieces of nature, as well as monuments of cultural heritage such as Byzantine churches and traditional watermills. The suggested routes are:

 

Monemvasia Trail Saint Nicholas (Level of difficulty 3)

 

Through a magnificent 3-hour hike from Monemvasia, we reach the Byzantine Church of Saint Nicholas (In the square of the homonymous small and picturesque village). This route, at its initial stage, is uphill and the view towards the Monemvasia Castle is breathtaking. Then, following the old path (which is mainly a cobbled road) through the mountain, where there is a middle vegetation, after a relatively easy and pleasant journey, we arrive near the village. Passing from the rural road that crosses the estates, we reach the village of Saint Nicholas.

In the square of Saint Nicholas, we will visit the rare beauty and historical value of the 11th century church, which is adorned by one-of-a-kind Byzantine icons. It holds a beautiful courtyard area, ideal for relaxation, where we will provide you with fresh orange juice and a time to rest before transferring to the Liotrivi Mansion. At the Mansion you will have the chance to take a tour of the Olive Museum and complete your journey with a deliciously satisfying local traditional meal prepared with the freshest of ingredients.

Talanta to Harahia (level of difficulty 2)

 

A fascinating route with lots of variety for the hiker, starring from the picturesque village of Talanta with its mountain gorge known as The Bali Gorge and ends by the sea. While crossing the small canyon, we find ruins of the 11 watermills that once existed in the area and primarily the 3rd, which was restored in 2006. This is a 2-hour journey, which leads to the sea, and more specifically to the beach of Harahia, one of the most famous beaches of Monemvasia and suitable for an enjoyable swim.

At the very start of our journey, after 500 m of cobbled streets, we will visit the water mill of Talanta (short tour), where you will be welcomed by Barba Yiannis, the last miller of the mill, who for 60 years has been grinding the wheat he cultivates in his land, in the same original way. Barba Yianni will entertain you as he entrusts you with all the secrets of his work and his many stories , while observing him grind the wheat.

Then we will descend the gorge, an easy route between ancient plane trees and running water, which becomes a bit difficult while crossing the reeds and shrubs of the local flora. On the beach of Harahi, where the route ends, a much-needed break time awaits you while being served fresh orange. After a short rest, we will be transferred to the Historic Mansion of Liotrivi for a tour of the Olive Museum and a rich meal

ZBIORY

NATURE LOVERS

In the wider area of Monemvasia, well known for its unique natural wealth and its rich flora (over 25,000 species of plants recorded), as well as the numerous monuments of nature and culture found there, we organize for small groups and individuals, exploratory excursions, specially tailored for our clients, reflecting their needs and interests, which are led by our experienced mountain and nature guides, who keep safety in mind for our guests.

In autumn and winter, the ideal choices are searching for rare mushrooms, such as truffles, while during the Spring season you can admire the rare wild flowers of the areas (50 or more officially recorded) but also the herbs of the area that form an important part of the flora of the Laconian Earth as well as contribute to traditional and alternative medicine practice.

Laconia Bay, and in particular the beaches of Monemvasia area, is one of the most important shelters of the protected turtle kareta kareta in Greece. This rare species stands out for its red-brown shell and its large head, can reach 1.25 meters in height and 180 kg in weight. Sea pollution, intensive fishing and the destruction of beaches has jeopardized its survival in recent years. Female turtles place their eggs on specific sandy beaches, where, after 50-75 days of incubation, small turtles crossing the sand are born to return to the water.
