    Capital of ouzo
    If you are a lover of ouzo and old buildings, you have come to the right place. The Plomari has plenty of both. I am not so sure if I fancy old buildings all that much, but ouzo, now that's a different matter altogether. Ever since I read about Plomari being the ouzo capital of the world, I have been dying to visit the village. The place produces some of the most famous ouzos in Greece. I drank liberal amounts of the famous Barbayiannis Ouzo as well as the Ouzo Giannatsi which is still made using traditional methods of distillation. Well, if you can tear yourself away sufficiently from the ouzo, Plomari can be quite an interesting place for sightseers, or so I gathered. Built amphitheatrically down to the sea, the town has a nice mix of great mansions, old buildings, ouzeries and olive presses, and the architecture is predominantly Ottoman. I had some great-tasting mezedes washed down with liberal amounts of ouzo, which is common on the menu of every restaurant or cafeneon in Plomari. I took a cab and went 10 km north to the village of Megalochori. Known as the Switzerland of Lesvos, the village was dotted with orchards and there is a small old church set in a courtyard filled with brightly colored flowers. Absolutely enchanting.
