Eressos Village in Lesvos
Information About Eressos
Eressos village Lesvos: The little town of Eressos is a place of special interest for its unique architecture and natural beauty. It lies 85 km west of Mytilene, the capital of Lesvos. Most importantly Eressos is the birthplace of the lyric poetess Sappho (7th century BC) and the philosophers Theophrastus and Phanias (4th century BC).
The last houses of the village are found around the natural port of Eressos where you will find nice seaside taverns, bars, cafes and plenty of accommodation. A couple of kilometres from the village is Skala Eresssou, a fine beach with sunbeds and umbrellas.
