janeso 25 Sep 2010Buy olive oil to take homeAgiassos was the most beautiful village on Lesvos for me! A mountainous village but very picturesque. Obviously a lot of visitors shared my opinion because both times we went there the streets were full. Obviously the local tradition is ceramics and pressing the olive oil. Generally Lesvos has many olive oil groves and produces the best virgin oil every autumn. In fact, the salads we tried had very delicious sweet oil! We bought a couple of bottles in Agiassos to take home and tried the taverns in the square. Amazing dishes, the best on the island. Houses were tall and attached one to the other, also they had no balconies, which is rather strange for Greece. Agiassos has lovely churches, the most beautiful is the church of Virgin Mary in the square. A baptism took place there one afternoon and we were happy to attend the event (even if we were not invited)!
