The island of Lemnos

Nature, villages, sights, haunts, people, architecture, seasons!

The whole island, stripped of forests and tree vegetation, lies in the northeast Aegean like a huge grassland. It consists of vast cultivated expanses, many slopes of brushwood, thorny burnet and dense fragrant thymes, where it owes its amazing sweet-smelling and fine honey.

Nature disposes of an interesting multiformity, which is expressed uniquely through petty details. Dentelated coastlines, small and big gulfs, capes, bays, Petalidi, Keros, Kavalari, Agios Sozon, Fourni, Kompi, Fakos, Stavros, the bay of Kontias, Agios Pavlos, Platy, the cape of Petasos, the bay of Kaspakas, Mourtzouflos.

The naked landscape, the sweet smell of grass, whether it is dry during summer or bright-green the other seasons, the simplicity and minimalistic refinement of the place, win you all at once.
