Enjoy the beautiful scenery of Lesvos and at the same time get to know its spiritual as well as its artistic aspect

A gentle ridge of mountains densely carpeted with lush pine and olive trees forms the background of Mitlini town, capital of Lesvos Island. This scenic tour allows you to admire this beautiful town, built like an amphitheatre, with a Byzantine castle towering over it from the top of a pine-covered hill. Other interesting sights include the Greek theatre, the old North Port and the House of the Old Mayor. After the scenic drive, you'll visit the old church of Taxiarches in Kagiani, constructed in 1903. The main attractions are the Icon of the Archangel Michael and a throne, both fine pieces of woodcarving, which are more than 300 years old and belonged to the first church. This location offers one of the best city views-a lovely photo opportunity! The next stop is the museum of Terriade. Here you will see the exhibition of Terriade's 29 "Great Books." Among the exhibits are five books illustrated by Chagall. ." In the Museum are also exhibited works by: Baudin, Bornard, Bores, Giacometti, Grimaire, Laurence, Le Corbusier, Leger, Matisse, Miro, Picasso, as well as by: Giorgos Vakirtzis, Theophilos Hadjimichail, Manolis Kalliyiannis, Orestis Kanellis, Callirhoe Marouda, Giorgos Rorris, Yiannis Tsarouchis.  Heading west out of town towards the Gulf of Kalloni, enjoy a pleasant drive to one of the most picturesque villages of Lesbos, Agiasos, clinging to the slopes of Mt Olympos at a height of 1500 feet. Tile-covered houses with wooden balconies laden with flowers are situated in narrow lanes, offering an eye-catching insight into village-style living. The Church of Panagia (Virgin Mary), with its majestic bell tower, was built in 1170 as a triple-aisled basilica and took its present-day form in 1815.
