The climb to Agia Sofia is truly worth it. Word of warning, make sure you wear good sturdy footwear for the climb. It's approximately 30 minutes from the main square but the views make it worthwhile.

What a church! Very pretty and well preserved. It is a good hike, so wear good shoes and it can be slippery since the rocks are slick. It is well worth it. Fabulous views as well

A restored chuch at the top of the Monemvasia mountain. But inside there are many old and original frescoes which thankfully have not been tampered with and have retained much of their shape and colour.

Stunning views from the top! You can now enter the church and even light a candle. In spring all the flowers are in bloom and the air is so fragrant!

We hiked up from the village of Kardamyli- strenuous for the first 30 minutes as it is fairly steep, but a well marked and groomed trail. Had great views of the sea. Then the signs were not so clear so we followed one sign and...More

The climb was worth it for the views and to see the restored church itself which at different times in its history has been a mosque and a catholic church and a Greek orthodox church.
