The Everyetoulas River has irrigated the large fertile kambos, or plain, for thousands of years. Its waters descend from a network of tributaries through an enormous olive plantation that the Municipality shares with Agiassos.
The estuaries of the Dipi wetlands are home to a large number of plants, reptiles, amphibians, birds, and insects, as well as the now rarely spotted otter.
The waters of the tributaries have created deep gullies with areas of natural beauty, and the wetlands are included in the Natura 2000 program. Unique experiences await the traveler on the trails through this area.
The Municipality consists of the villages of Lambou Myloi, Asomatos, Ippeios, Sykounta, Kato Tritos, Mychou, and Kerameia. Ancient ruins are everywhere, as well as religious monuments: the Byzantine monastery of the Taxiarch in Kato Tritos; the church of the Taxiarch in Asotmatos (1796); and the church of Agios Prokopios in Ippeios (1741). In Mychou in the region of Fousa, there is a cave in which Hellenistic figurines and graves were found. At Paspala in Lambou Myloi you can see a section of the Roman Aqueduct that supplied water to Mytilene. Dipi has old factory buildings, and in Mylelia a recently restored watermill has become an important tourist attraction.
Tourism is making gradual inroads into Everyetoulas. Pigadakia is the region’s developed beach and in its picturesque little coves you’ll find tavernas serving fresh fish from the crystalline waters of Yera Bay. For nightlife try Dipi and Pigadakia.
Asomatos is a picturesque mountain village, claimed by some to be the most beautiful on Lesvos. Agioi Anargyroi, a stunning area with plane trees and streams, has a taverna nestled in a shady spot.
One of the Municipality’s most significant initiatives has been the creation of a Center for Environmental Education at Asomatos, and a Visitor Information Center in Lambou Myloi.
