About Lesvos

Lesvos island is famous for producing the best ouzo of Greece and for being the land of the famous Greek female poet Sappho, who lived in the 7th century BC and wrote wonderful poems about her lesbian relationships as well as hymns, love songs, and poems on various themes. Lesvos is also the birthplace of the writer Aesop, of the philosophers Aristotle and Epicurus, of the famous poet Odysseas Elytis and of the painter Theophilos.
