It is the strategic geographical position of Lesvos that has coloured its history – both mythological and real – and we strongly recommend that visitors with a specific interest in history conduct their own research, as everywhere you look a new story will unfold.

  • Homer calls Lesvos ‘Makaros ethos’, referring to the mythical King of Lesvos, Makaras.
  • Achilles launched many attacks on the island, mooring his ships close to the ancient port of Mithyma (present-day Molyvos), and finally conquering it through treachery.
  • On Mt Lepetymos Achilles and Ajax buried Palamides, hero of the Trojan War.
  • At Antissa, the head and lyre of Orpheus were washed up by the waves of the Aegean and legend has it that, as a result, the nightingales sing more sweetly on Lesvos than anywhere else on earth.
  • It was on Lesvos that Odysseus wrestled and defeated King Philomilides and where he met with Diomedes and Menelaeus to plan their journey home after the fall of Troy.
