    Since Lesvos is so small, can a detour in Molivos near lays probably with good conscience any visitor. From a large parking lot at the foot of the town, the castle on foot can be climbed (Yes, you could take the car up, but this one would miss something!). Keep Variant 1: to the bottom left, the gently rising promenade on the harbour wall goes up and then turns halfway to the port (with the many great seafood restaurants) in the main streets, which are overgrown by shady vines. Option 2: to start the climb to the Castle just across the parking lot. In this way, you can see the real Molivos with its year-round residents and quaint hotels. On this page there are none like the others no souvenir shops, but only lanes on streets -.
