About the area
The region combines exceptional natural beauties: olive groves and pine forests, oak-trees, cypress-trees as well as fruit-bearing trees, traditional stone built mountain villages with running waters and rich vegetation, but also seaside modern summer holiday settlements with sandy beaches and crystal waters.
The long beach is sandy and very good for swimming and there is a good array of restaurants along the beach road, which cater for all tastes. There is a frequent bus service in the summer, which travels between Anaxos, Petra, MolIvos and Eftalou, enabling the visitor to easily access these and other places during their stay.
Dominated by its famous, picturesque church, perched 40 metres above the rooftops on a huge rocky outcrop in the centre of the village, Petra is a year-round working village. Its traditional way of life still flourishes with fishermen busy on the harbour and farmers chatting noisily over their morning coffee in the bustling village square.
Pretty, cobbled streets of small, immaculately clean houses open on to shady squares and wider streets of well-preserved neo-Classical mansions set in large gardens – all overflowing with the summer scents of jasmine and bourganvillia.
The little shopping streets open out on to the lively main square on the seafront where, in summer, you can enjoy breakfast in the morning sun or spend warm evenings in the pavement cafes and tavernas. The village is enjoying a growing popularity with tourists -many returning every year – so there are modern amenities available as well as well-stocked shops.
Molivos (Mithymna or Molyvos) at the northern tip of Lesvos is arguably the most beautiful village of the island with its picturesque harbour dominated by the castle and tiers of red-tiled stone houses climbing up the slopes away from the blue sea.
According to mythology, Mithymna was one of the five daughters of the mythical King Makara.The traditional architecture of the town reflects the modus vivendi and social life styles of the past. In 1965 the competent authorities put a preservation order on the entire settlement of Molyvos (Mithymna), thus declaring it a protected town.
Mithymna owns an archaeological collection with impressive findings from the surrounding area, and a library with a collection of over ten thousand volumes and manuscripts.
Since 1960, tourist development has played a critical role in the life and evolution of Molyvos. Every year a significant number of cultural events and conferences, both national and international, are held in Molyvos. Art exhibitions, lectures, theatrical performances and folklore events are held in the town.
Apart from the tourist industry, the local inhabitants also work in the fishing, olive cultivation, cattle-breeding and farming sector.
