The city of Mytilene

It's here 

The moment you arrive at the large port, the city of Mytilene will win your heart with its air of dolce vita. The island’s capital, built on seven hills and crowned by the Gateluzzi fortress, has preserved important features from its resplendent past and its outstanding cultural history.

A busy town with a lively nightlife, Mytilene satisfies every need and desire in terms of hotels, restaurants and recreation.

Its emblems are the majestic Gateluzzi castle, the church of Agios Therapon with its impressive dome, and, at the edge of the port, the Statue of Liberty. A classic meeting point for locals is the area around Sappho Square, and the other half of the horseshoe of the new southern port with its fashionable bars and cafés that draw crowds starting first thing in the morning. Stop there to enjoy the passersby and the nonstop action.

On your way out of the city, on your left you’ll pass a superb 1880 mansion (known as the Georgiadis mansion), standing imperiously but abandoned, and the impressive Kalamari factory, which over the years was a textile mill, a yarn mill, an olive oil press and a flourmill.

South of the municipality of Mytilene

Leave the city behind and take Kavetsou Street towards the Vostaneio Hospital. You’ll pass some superb neoclassical houses and castles that managed to survive the barbaric growth of the new city and stand bravely among the new characterless buildings.
