  Lesvos

The island of Lesvos is located in the North-Eastern Aegean, ranked third among the Greek Islands and is one of the oldest residential areas in Greece. A volcanic eruption that took place 20 million years ago divided the island into two different landscapes. The eastern side is lush with olive groves and forests that reach to the sea which contrasts sharply with the dry landscape of the western side with the famous PETRIFIED FOREST of SIGRI, one of the two largest petrified forests in the world (the other is in Arizona)

According to Greek mythology the first settler was Makaras the son of the Sun , who had four sons and five daughters Mitiline , Míthimna , Issa and Arisve. The name "LESBOS" is attributed to Lesbios -grandson of Aeolus- and husband of Mithymna, who came with Aeolian settlers and once he came to power gave the island its name.

The arts and letters flourished on the island from the beginning of ancient times while the contribution of Lesbian people is undoubted in building the ancient Greek civilization. Terpandros Antissaios , Arion Mithymnaios , Koition Mytilinaios are among the famous musicians of antiquity The leading lyric poet Alcaeus and Sappho's famous tenth Muse inspired by this place and left art works unchanged for centuries .
