LESBOS North - Molyvos

Mithimna or Molyvos located 62 kilometres from the island' s capital, is one of the five ancient towns in Lesvos and a well-known tourist resort. It is famous for the  Castle, the well-preserved traditional architectural features, the picturesque stone houses with the tiled roofs, the mansions, the old churches, the architectural monuments and the cobblestone lanes just right for strolling.

Harbour at Molyvos

This charming combination of history and natural beauty has been the inspiration for many poets, writers and artists since time immemorial. Visitors to the town are enchanted by the picturesque scenery of the olive groves at the foot of the rock the top of which the medieval castle dominates. At dusk when it lights up, it is bewitching.

The main cemetery of the ancient town was situated to the south of the town wall. The graves, which have been found along the road that starts from Petra and goes to Mithimna, are a proof that this road already existed in the antiquity.

On the far side of the town, the small harbour completes this unique image. The ruins of the ancient quay show that the ancient harbour was situated at the same place, where the current one is. The small harbour with the traditional tavernas is a very inviting spot for a traveller to sample the local dishes and enjoy the ambience.
