  • The castle is worth a detour if you are close to, but not worth rather a longer route. Overlooking the village of Molivos is really spectacular, for the climb worth (if you wish to travel by car up not convenient).

  • Great views and very interesting castle. There was some information but not enough to match the history of the castle. Worth a visit.
  • The castle of Molyvos is the second biggest castle of the island. It was built during the Byzantine period. It is very well preserved, and it is one of the best places to see if you visit the island of lesvos. It is fully illuminated during summer, and it looks like  as it is projected at the top of the traditional village of Molyvos(known as Mythimna as well) During summer many  live music events are organised inside the castle.  Outside of the castle there is a very nice cafe restaurant where you can enjoy the amazing sunset.
  • The best spot in the all island and one of the best cafe in the all area...it worth it to try.......
  • The most beautiful castle on Lesvos. Very nice view surrounding. Looks nice during the night because is iluminated.
  • Went there for a concert at night. Really good atmosphere, great lighting and seating available. Definitely recommend seeing something here.
