Photographs of the island of Lesbos in the Aegean Sea

Lesvos or Lesbos lies among the north-eastern Aegean islands and close to the Turkish mainland.
Also called by its capital town of Mytilini, It’s relatively isolated with the nearest islands of note being Chios to the south and Limnos to the north, both some distance away.
Big and beautiful, Lesvos is the third largest of the Greek islands and although it has stretched its arms wide to embrace the tourist market it still exudes a traditional small Greek island atmosphere.
