Travel Guide Limnos Island East Aegean Greece
Limnos has low and windswept hills, flat cultivable plains, beautiful seashores, salterns and water biotopes, sandy beaches and volcanic shaped rocks that make the island unique.
Myrina is the capital and harbour of the island, built on a small peninsula between two capes, separated by the imposing rock and its fortress. Tourkikos Gialos has great taverns and a small harbour for fishing boats, while Romaikos Gialos is filled with beautiful neoclassical buildings extending throughout the seashore of the beach while the arched paved alleys lend the town an exceptional colour. The fortress located on a steep elevation crowns the hill between the two shores and offers outstanding views.
Deer wondering freely in the area will surprise you in a good way. Some other interesting sites are those of the prehistoric settlement of Myrinas, behind Riha Nera beach and that of Artemis' church as well.
Some villages of particular interest are: Kaminia (ancient Poliohni) and Kontopouli where the ruins of ancient Ifestia are, the church of Kaviron and the Filoktitis cave. Close to Kontopouli is Alyki Lake which is a shelter of rare birdlife. Other beautiful villages are: Kaspakas, Thanos, Kontias, Skandali and Kornos.
