Still on the north part of the island, we find the village of Molyvos, also known as Mythimna. Molyvos is the most picturesque place of Mytilini and one of the most beautiful mediaeval places that Greece has to show. Climbing on the slope, with the castle as a cover, captivates anyone who faces it for the first time.
Mythimna has been since ancient times the inspiration of the artists and was the birthplace of the famous singer and guitar-player Arion. The town hall of Mythimna shelters a great archaeological collection, open to the public and including exhibits from ancient to roman times.
