Molivos Village

Molyvos village Lesvos: 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.

Molivos is absolutely beautiful. When you approach it from Petra, suddenly it pops in front of you - a beautiful image of a hill with a castle on top of it and houses down to the sea. Whatever direction you look at it from it is awe inspiring. You just drop your jaw. There is a peculiar serenity about the place, clean air, silence, people moving about. The characteristic thing about molivos and Lesvos is that there is always a beautiful view wherever you are.
