The forest

Near the sacred Monastery of Hypsylou and in the area near Eressos, you will find the stoned forest of Lesvos. This natural monument is unique to the whole of Europe. Nowhere in the world is a similar forest to be found, with the exception of Arizona in the US. The accompanying museum is definitely worth a visit.

Hicking
Mysterious chestnut forests, expansive coniferous forests, rugged mountain ranges, two large inland seas and a whimsical coastline: the green and fertile Lesvos is a true natural paradise. It is located in the North Aegean Sea, has 85,000 inhabitants and is the third largest island in Greece, with its 1630 square kilometers.
The population is mainly concerned with agriculture and livestock: the mountains attract giant sheep herds and the hills are covered with some eleven million olive trees.
The hiking trails are well described and in many cases marked. Also with hot days it is good to do.
Bring close walking shoes.

Molyvos

Molyvos is a picturesque town on Lesvos, It is located in the northern part of the island and is built on a hill. It has a colourful fishing port and picturesque narrow streets and it is actually the most beautiful and nicest place of Lesvos.

The sight of the houses against the mountain, with the top of the castle is beautiful. It is an authentic, truly Greek town. It is touristic, but it has retained its traditional style. Through the cobbled streets that run up and down.

In Molyvos, which is 68 kilometers northwest of Mytilene , there are many nice shopping streets with souvenir shops and small markets. There are many good restaurants and taverns, some have breathtaking views to the Bay of Molyvos.

The Pebble Beach at Molyvos may be somewhat less attractive
