The town of Mytilene

Our city has everything to offer!

The capital of Lesvos island is Mytilene. It is built in the south, around the port, and is shaped like a crescent moon. It is deservingly called also “Lady of the Aegean”. The list of important and also breathtaking sightseeing this town has to offer, is a long one. Don’t miss the Castle or Fortress of Mytilene, the Theofilos Museum, the Municipal Art Gallery, the “Teriade” Museum of Modern Art, the Yeni Mosque built in 1825, the Ancient Theater of Mytilene, the Roman Aqueduct of Moria, the bronze Statue of Liberty which stands out like an emblem at the edge of the harbor, and the landmark-church of Agios Therapon with its majestic dome.

If you desire to live like a local even for a few hours, stroll down the pebbled Ermou street at the heart of the town center, shop, converse, enjoy a coffee or even ouzo and unwind the Greek way. After all, Lesvos island is truly the birthplace of the renowned ouzo spirit. At night, the town of Mytilene becomes even more vibrant and has endless choices of entertainment to offer. Your holiday in our city will for sure be memorable!
