LIMNOS

Since the 4th-3rd millennium BC, Lemnos has had a remarkable network of settlements: some faced the coast of Asia Minor, while others faced the northern islands of Greece. In the town of Myrina you can enjoy fresh fish dishes with the locals and explore the town’s massive volcanic rocks. Visit the island’s museums and take a tour to the Aliki and Hortarolimni lakes.

The starting point for learning about the island is historic Myrina, the capital and port of Lemnos. Walk along its traditional cobblestone lanes. Go up to the castle that dominates the island, and if you’re lucky, you’ll share the superb view in the company of one of the deer that live freely in the region. Take a romantic walk along the Romaiko Gialo (Roman Beach) where you will find many stone mansions. Visit the Archaeological Museum with its significant finds from Poliochni, Myrina, Hephaistea and Kabierion.
Imposing rock formations, unique landscapes with volcanic rock, verdant curving hills, extensive fertile plains, enormous sand dunes, wetlands and beaches that are true gems, are all part of the island’s varied geophysical nature.
A multiple, lacey shoreline 259 km long hosts leeward bays, graphic inlets, crystal waters and sandy beaches. Enjoy the sun and the sea at Fanaraki, Riha Nera, Roman Beach, Kaminia, Havouli and Platy.
• In the lovely village of Kaspakas, you can admire the waterfalls in the Agios Yannis area.
• The large village of Kontias, with its traditional mansions and half-ruined windmills.
• The seaside Nea Koutali, birthplace of the famous wrestler Panagis Koutalianos
• Moudros, with its beautiful beach and petrified forest.
• The little agricultural village of Kaminia, site of the significant pre-historic settlement of Poliochni, the oldest city in Europe.
• Kontopouli, to see the archaeological site of Hephaestia, with its famous temple of the great goddess of Lemnos, but also the cave of the mythical hero Philoctetes which, according to tradition, was associated with the Cabiran Sanctuary. In this region, wetlands of unique natural beauty have become a refuge for the striking flamingos, as well as many other rare migratory birds.
