Discover East Lesvos

We start from Petra with the church of Virgin Mary which stands on a high rock and that has 114 footsteps to the top. You can stroll along the seafront and also look at the small back streets of the village. Then we drive towards the middle of the island to come to the tourist resort Skala Kalloni which is known for its unique specie of sardines. It lays along the Gulf of Kalloni and has a nice square (plateia). After your stroll around, we drive along the salt plains, where you can see the flamingos and other type of bird life. We also pass nice nature scenery as we go to Mytilene to visit the island’s biggest castle. We head on to Moria where you can see the beautiful Roman Aqueduct. We then drive along the east coast where you will see nice landscape, the blue Aegean Sea and the Turkish coastline. We stop at Mantamados which is known for the local pottery, traditional yoghurt, cheese and of course the Taxiarchis Monastery (Archangels Michael & Gabriel). After we head off to reach Skala Sikamineas which has a picturesque little fishing harbour and the church of Virgin Mary Gorgona (Mermaid) on a rock along the sea front. Later we continue our journey and come to Molivos which is located on the north tip of the island. We visit a nice castle which stands on the highest point of Molivos and we also go to the small harbour where a refreshment and pictures can be taken. After that we return to Petra.
