The Northeast Aegean island which is the third largest in Greece after Crete and Evia, presents intense cultural, cultural as well as historical interest for visitors.
Nobody can overtake the Petrified Forest of Lesvos in the western part of the island Bali Alonia in its place, which is the largest of the globe (along of course with the Petrified Forest of Arizona), where there is also the Museum of natural history of the island .
The ride in Mytilini clearly cannot be combined with a visit to the Castles of the island, with the most famous being certainly the so-called “Castle of Mytilene” or “Fortress of Mytilene”, although there are still two castles, this of molyvos and of Sigri.
An important element of the island, the 12 churches declared the 12 monuments belonging to the 100 most endangered historical sites in the world. Among these, the High Monastery, the Catholic Monastery Famous but and the early Christian basilica of Agios Andreas Eresou.
From Lesbos no visitor to leave, without putting in his luggage a bottle with the famous ouzo of Plomari, and why not to visit the Museum of ouzo of Plomari Isidoros Arvanitis in Plomari, where in the same region belongs and the Museum SOAP of the island. No one can say with certainty how many days is enough to turn around the whole island or even the most important points, for what good is before you visit the island of Lesbos, to have ready your “map”, with everything you would like to see to save time.
