Lesvos is the green Aegean
jewel located in the northeast side of the bay, an earthly paradise with
healing springs and many beaches that charm the visitors with the perfection
of their shape and their clear crystal waters.
A piece of land that was cut from Asia Minor and traveled in the blue
waters of the Aegean Sea, a wonderful decorated ship like Stratis Murivilis
has mentioned, which floats free and easy in the sea, Lesvos is the island
of 1630 square klm, the third after Grete and Evoia
The thousand square meters
in combination with the endless forests offer a silver green color to
the island with the shape of a leaf, as Odysseus Elitis has described
The island is the birthplace of some famous people of art and literature
like the philosopher Theofrastos, the singer and guitar-player Arion,
Sapfo and Alkaio, Pittako one of the seven wise men whose face was imprinted
in many coins, and finally, the great painter Jakobidis, the Nobel prize
winner Elitis and some other who made history in their own way.
