Ancient marble ruins~ It is said that during early christian times Greek temples were destroyed and replaced by churches
The founding of the town and fortress of Monemvassia most probably occurred in the 6th century AD

At the caves of Dyros
An underground river moving through the limestone.
Human remnants from the Neolithic times have been discovered in the caves.
Cave divers have attempted to explore the cave and it is believed that the river system goes as far north as Sparta.
For first 1200m of the cave you have to use a boat, and the last 300 are by foot.
