Limnos, one of the busiest ports in Greece, with beautiful beaches, traditional villages untouched by modern tourism, hardly fits the stereotypes that circulate about the Greek islands. It is an island quite flat with rolling hills, green meadows sprinkled
with yellow ocher spring and summer.
It was the island's native-blacksmith god Hephaistos (Vulcan mythology Romanian), who was venerated on Mount Moschylus. In the past, it was emitting gas, but today is manifested by his past volcanic hot springs and the land limnian sulfuric astringent, used
for wound healing time of Turkish occupation and to relieve stomach ache.
