ABOUT THE AREA
Greece’s third-largest island (and one of the best-organised), Lesvos is marked by long sweeps of rugged desert-like western plains that give way to sandy beaches and salt marshes in the centre. To the east are thickly forested mountains and dense olive groves – around 11 million olive trees are cultivated here.
The port and capital, Mytilini Town, is a lively place year-round, filled with exemplary ouzeries and reasonable accommodation, while the north-coast town of Molyvos (aka Mithymna) is an aesthetic treat, with old stone houses clustered on winding lanes overlooking the sea. The island’s therapeutic hot springs gush with some of the warmest mineral waters in Europe.
Despite its undeniable tourist appeal, Lesvos’ chief livelihood is agriculture. its olive oil is highly regarded, and the island’s farmers produce around half the ouzo sold worldwide.
Located on the North of Lesvos just 4 km from Molyvos, Petra is overlooked by the church of Panayia Glykofilousa (Virgin Mary of the Sweet Kiss) built in 1747, which is perched on top of a rock some 30 metres high. The village takes it’s name from this rock.
The village has it’s own style and a charming individuality and is a very popular resort in the summer. it has quite a nice beach, with a good selection of tavernas just across the main road. There are also quite a few cafes around the plateia near the beach.
There is a very old Turkish house in the centre of the village, which is reputedly the oldest on Lesvos. The area of Petra has been inhabited since ancient times, as can be seen from the tombs revealed on the Keramidaria site.
According to legend, Achilles anchored here in the immense bay on his way to the Trojan War. Put in simple terms, this is a village by the sea, built on a flat plain around a tall rock…. and so much more.
