North of the municipality of Mytilene

It's here 

Moria
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. Driving north, on your right are the semi-ruined Kourtouzi Thermal Baths, which flourished in the early 20th century.
A bit farther up the hill at the site of the city’s necropolis in Classical times is Tambarakia, an area with many impressive former soap and fish-processing factories. Be sure to check out Dimitris Demertzis’ amazing antique shop. You’ll pass through verdant landscapes and beautiful coastal villages that retain all their old-fashioned charm and warm hospitality. Stop at some of them for ouzo and mese, fresh fish or coffee.
Continue north and east towards Molyvos. North of the city you’ll find the four villages comprising the Municipality of Moria. Moria is known for its Roman Aqueduct, a 2nd century stone structure that transported water to Mytilene from the springs in Agiassos. Moria also has a church dedicated to Agios Vassileios (St. Basil), built in 1769. Large, gracious town houses, industrial buildings (mostly olive oil presses), castles with tall enclosures and fragrant gardens, quaint alleyways, cafés, and old-fashioned shops provide a picture of a living village.
 

Panayiouda – Pamfila
Nestled among the soap factories and olive oil presses is the church of Agia Varvara (St Barbara), whose marble templon was carved by the prominent Greek sculptor Yannoulis Halepas in 1878. The neoclassical Public School building on the main street is noteworthy, as are the balconies gracing the village’s mansions, and the old olive oil presses and soap factories. This wealthy village once played an important role in the island’s trade and commerce.
