Abstract: The castle town of Monemvasia flourished in the 13th and 14th centuries and is one of the few Byzantine cities that still retain distinct traces of its centuries-old history. The built and natural environment, in an inseparable relationship, witnesses the long and uninterrupted life, creatively and harmoniously integrating each layer of the history of the place. Monemvasia maintains its historical character and is an important example of the architectural revival of a historical ensemble. The presentation attempts to highlight the elements that constitute the special identity of this “living” historical monument. Also, to raise concerns about the future preservation and development of Monemvasia and the overall issues of the management of this important architectural heritage
