#1 of 28 Sights & Landmarks in Lesbos
... an hour by car to get there- there is - of course -regular bus service- as soon you get there you will come to realise the spiritual aspect of the place and the history behind the central icon of the monastery.
It is the most beautiful Monastery with a rich historical and religious significance .If you visit Lesvos you should go there.

It is serene and peaceful and beautifully decorated with some much older icons in some parts.
You can’t help but look at the beautiful church on the rocks as you approach Petra from road or sea.

Climbing the shop-lined, cobbled streets, one reaches this castle, one of many scattered across Lesbos and Chios built in medieval times, often on top of more ancient Greek and Roman ruins, in order the islanders...
... from where the train stops..The castle was larger than i expected ,there are plenty of boards with the history of the castle on.It cost to 2 Euros to go in ,there are some great views and well worth a visit.

We stayed in Molyvos and loved it but wanted to see Petra and took the train, had very good time in Petra beach which is better than Molyvos .We had a very good sightseeing, fresh air; it was fun.
train from Petra to Molyvos, nice views, ticket hop on hop of 6 euro, I can recomand, we hop off Molyvos castle, we visited the fortress, then went down trought nice narrow aisles to the port, where we hop on

It bears a history of centuries- the museum is a must and the area is spectacular!
Unfortunately the museum was closed which was a bit disappointing but even so, the visit was lovely, amazing to see all the little churches on site.

Walk the top of the castle walls, discover ancient cistern, touch ancient marble columns, explore and the underground crypt!
Extensive castle grounds with extensive views in all directions - and only 2 Euros entrance.

My first siting of this magnificent structure was from a tall hill a number of miles away.
If this was at a different place, there would be masses of guides, signs, tourists etc.
