This Greek Island Is The Perfect Paradise -- And Supervillain Hideout

This Greek island is the perfect paradise — and supervillain hideout

This amazing place is Monemvasia, a fortified town that resisted a siege of more than three years located on a tiny island in the Peloponnese sea connected to continental Greece through a bridge. I want to be in one of those terraces, eating black olives and seafood.

    And to throw off potential invaders Greece has two places named Monemvasia :-)

    Beautiful place.

    But more interestingly. You really do earn a living, finding pics online and saying basically nothing about them.

      He basically stole pics from Wikipedia, and wrote some vague crap from the Wikipedia article. I was expecting the Island to be for sale, or some hilltop or Cliffside villa. But nope, just a wiki article...

        Pretty sure he just saw the images posted on reddit/imgur. Because fuck actual research amirite?

      And yet he forgot to mention there is a nice big bridge on the other side of the island:
