Why go to Lesbos

Laid-back, traditional and unspoilt, Lesbos is the quintessential Greek island experience. With a mountainous interior, rolling olive groves and long sandy beaches, this slow-paced North Aegean jewel is as beautiful as it is cultured.

From ancient castles to iconic churches and monasteries, Lesbos – also spelled Lesvos – has a wealth of history to explore. The capital, Mytilene, is packed with sights, although visitors often head straight to Molyvos, where a striking Byzantine castle watches over the village’s winding cobbled alleyways. Elsewhere, there’s the Church of the Panagia Glykofilousa and the 17th-century Ipsilou Monastery (near Andissa) – both important national pilgrimage sites.

The must-see attractions don’t end there, though. Lesbos has long been associated with artists and literati, most notably the poet Sappho and the painter Theophilos. You can see the works of the latter at the Theophilos Museum, or visit the nearby Teriade Museum for another art collection that includes pieces by Picasso and Matisse.
