ali22 22 Sep 2008Many mosques in MytileneI did't see much of Lesvos but only the capital and the beaches around it, because we stayed only for a couple of days on the island. From as much as we saw, I can tell that Mytilene is a lovely town. I was particularly impressed by its mosques, although they don't work today. I am a Muslim myself and I was surprised to see so many mosques on a Greek island. I must have counted three or four mosques in Mytilene. I also liked the waterfront with the cafeterias and the tiny fishing boats. In the evening, you could see many fishermen getting their nets ready for work. If you want good and truly Greek food, go to small taverns, not big restaurants. Unfortunately, we didn't have the time to see the rest of the island, so we will certainly go back next year.
