Arguably the most important attraction on the island is the Byzantine castle of Mytilene. The fort rises on the top of the hill at the northeastern side of the capital, offering panoramic views. In every corner of the island can be found many religious monuments.

The Monastery of Leimonos is located just outside the town of Kalloni. The monastery was founded in the early 16th century and impresses with its historical relics.

Finally, at the village of Sigri is located the petrified forest of Lesvos. The Petrified Forest was formed 15-20 million years ago due to volcanic eruptions. Today, you can admire hundreds of fossilized tree trunks.
