Molyvos – or Mithimna in the old Greek – is one of the most attractive small towns of Greece. It is architecturally protected due to its historical importance as an ancient seaport – dating from before the fall of Troy.
Molyvos is situated on a conical shaped hill crowned by a magnificent medieval castle. A walk through the agora (market) – roofed by flower arcades down to the picturesque port, is an expedition through the eventful history of the island.

One can find traditional restaurants, non crowded beaches, cafes and shops background for a relaxing time. For many years Molyvos has hosted various yoga retreats and related workshops.
