Molyvos, also known as Mythimna is one of the most beautiful medieval villages in Lesvos located 60 km west of Mytilene, the capital of the island. Molyvos is a traditional preserved settlement attracting thousands of visitors with its natural beauty and
picturesque corners. Narrow alleys winding around the traditional stone built houses, the Turkish style fountains and beautiful mansions compose an idyllic setting. The landmark of Molyvos is the medieval castle that stands at the top of the rocky cliff and
is the second largest castle of Lesvos. Its entrance is quite impressive as well as the view to the Aegean. The archaeological collection, the numerous Byzantine churches and the neoclassical buildings witness a place of special importance. Plenty of accommodations,
seaside taverns and nice cafes are found in the village. Some kilometres outside Molyvos is Eftalou, a stunning location with beautiful isolated beaches.
