Mytilene Guide

The ancient Greek city of Mytilene is the capital and port of the south east coast of the island of Lesbos, which lies in the north eastern Aegean Sea. The city's origins date back to the 11th century BC and has a number of neo-classical buildings, public and private, on display. Some of these buildings are the buildings of the Lesbos Prefecture, the old City Hall, the Experimental Lyceum and the various mansions and hotels located throughout the town. Dominating the port is the Baroque Church of Saint Therapon on which construction began in the 19th century and was completed in 1935.

The island of Lesbos has a land area of around 1,600 sq. km and has roughly 320 km of coastline, which makes it the third largest Greek island. The narrow Mytilini Strait separates it from the Turkish mainland.

Mytilene has a port with ferries to the nearby islands of Lemnos, Chios and Ayvalik and at times Dikili in Turkey. The port also serves the mainland cities of Piraeus, Athens and Thessaloniki.

Psara Guide

The Greek island of Psara lies in the Aegean Sea to the west of Chios and is home to around 400 inhabitants and is the largest of an island cluster that includes seven islets. The smaller islets include Antipsara, uninhabited today, Kato Nisi, Aye Nikolaki, Daskalio, Psaronisi and Nisopoula. Collectively they are a popular location for tourists who enjoy the island's peach and tranquillity, good range of accommodation and some lovely tavernas.

There is only one inhabited settlement on the island and is located by the sea and is also home to the island's only port. Houses in the village are of typical Greek architecture and with some of the public buildings providing visitors with an insight into the island's illustrious past.

Psara and the East Aegean Islands in general are connected to the port of Piraeus. From Psara you can also visit the nearby Cycladic islands of Syros, Tinos, Mykonos and Andros.
