Agiasos

It's here 

Agiassos is located on the slope of Mt. Olympos at an altitude of 475 meters, 27 kilometers from Mytilene. With exceptionally lush vegetation, traditional architecture, and inquisitive residents, Agiassos is a listed artistic and religious settlement with a characteristic dialect and a cultural atmosphere that visitors are sure to find interesting.

The Agiassos Carnival is well-known, and is distinguished from other carnivals in Greece for its idiosyncrasy, and the caustic, spirited satirical verses recited by local folk poets in the classic vernacular idiom.

Agiassos also has a number of crafts workshops that contine a long tradition of pottery and wood carving.

The textile shops where you can watch women in traditional dress weaving on looms are completely authentic.

On the way to Agiassos you’ll come to a beautiful spot called Karini. It’s a lovely place to stop for a drink or meal in one of the cafés shaded by perennial trees. One of these cafés has a mural painted by the folk artist Theophilos.
