Monemvassia Castle Houses

The DOROVINIS COMPLEX is dating at least from Venetian times (although the Byzantine frescoes of the chapel of St Andrew may prolong its origin to this back period). It is located in the central part of the town, neighboring with the Parish (Mitropolis) Church of “Elkomenos Christos”.

The complex is composed of
1. The main, 4 levels building, comporting the house of the owner (on the upper 3 levels) and the vaulted TELESSILLA house on the ground level (with private entrance from the lower walkway). The main building is built and adjusted to the rocky background of the town, folding down between the upper and the lower walkways. On the upper walkway  there is the entrance of the main house and across it is found. 2. The detached vaulted house ALKMENE and 3. The chapel of ST. ANDREW with a small courtyard between them.

Monemvassia is the quintessential citadel and almost resembles the setting of a period film:

the immensely photogenic rock is home to an abandoned upper town that intimates a glorious past

and an enchanting lower town of cobblestone pathways and gorgeously renovated stone buildings.
