The Lava paths (Sigri – Eressos Tour)

It is a trip 21 million years back in time at the west of Lesvos. The Natural History Museum of the petrified forest of Lesvos, which includes stunning finds from the excavations in the petrified forest that reveal the geo historical evolution of the Aegean sea. The Museum collaborates with the Global Geoparks Network of Unesco and the European Geoparks Network. Visiting Lesvos without visiting the Museum is like visiting France without visiting the Eiffel tower.<br><br>In the afternoon we will visit Skala Eressos, the name of this place is connected with Eressos whom was the son of the mythic king Makara. The first residents were called Pelasgi, after them it was the Achaeans and then the Aeolan sailors. At the ending of the 17th century it was relocated at the inner side of the island to avoid the pirates invasion. Eressos was a big commercial center and their products were exported also in Egypt. Sappho, the great lyrical poet and the philosophers Theophrastos and Phanas were born there.

Steeped in history, interesting to see and visit. Ticket entrance was 3 euros per person. Well labeled exhibits . Advise one to visit it early in the morning or late afternoon as it can be really hot in the sun up there

We went to this castle by the blue train that goes from Petra to Molivos. The castle itself is okay, but the view from the castle to the Molivos city is amazing!

The visit in Molivos is the must. Perfectly laid village with castle on the top. Nearby port is... another village :) totally different climate (but also very nice). If you like - you can go into the castle (ticket 2 euro, opened 8-15.00 in wintertime. But to be honest, you will see nothing but fantastic views. In my opinion the best is to have walkings in streets, take a look on climate and backyards.

Ticket 2€, nice views but not much too see. Parts of the castle are closed. However, if you like to walk a little, it is a nice trip 😊
