Tour Details

Step back in time with this visit to Monolithos Castle, an impressive 15th century structure built by the Knights of Saint John. Monolithos was considered one of the four most powerful fortresses on the island, and is actually built on top the foundation of an older, former castle.

Walk inside the external fortification walls to find the 15th century chapels of St. Panteleimon and St. George. The castle's location on top of the mountain helps to make it impenetrable to outside forces and gives you stunning panoramic views of the sea, the mountain of Akramytis with its innumerable hills, and the village of Monolithos below. While here you and your beloved will stay for the romantic sunset which is considered to rival the sunset in Santorini!

Before the sun lowers you will visit a winery in Embonas village for a private wine, olive oil, and honey tasting. This area is renowned for its countless vineyards and quality wine. Following the wine tasting you will have the option to visit one of the delicatessens for a delicious local meal (at your own discretion and expense). While in the village, stop at a traditional house to get a feeling how the people of the village used to live many years ago. You will also stop at a distillery to see how the traditional souma drink is made, then try this popular fig drink yourself.

Don't miss this amazing opportunity to see one of the most spectacular sunsets in an area that gives you a sense of the presence of the Gods! Book your very special, private tour today and make a memory that will last a lifetime.
