Molyvos, also known as Mithymna, is situated on the north coast of Lesvos. It is, indeed, a town of stunning beauty and historical importance. Molyvos is set on a small mountain, topped by an extraordinary medieval castle. The main street of the settlement is made of cobbled stone, while all around are scattered beautiful, traditional houses and shops of all kind.
Molyvos has a great selection of restaurants, hotels, bars and nightclubs. Since 1960, tourist development has played a critical role in the evolution of the town.
The harbor is an ideal place of relaxation, with a great number of tavernas, while the pebbled-sandy beach is one of the best, having won the blue flag for being so clean.
Finally, Molyvos is very close to the beach resort of Eftalou with its thermal springs.
