Agiassos Agiassos


Agiassos – perhaps the most charming mountain village on Lesvos – is located on the pine and olive covered slopes of Mount Olympus. The village is surrounded by lovely gardens with fruit trees and extended chestnut forests. Agiassos is a completely traditional village of narrow stone streets and picturesque lanes with shops selling handmade ceramics and also locally collected herbs and tea, excellent olive oil, cheese and honey and many other culinary delights.

In the heart of the village you find the famous church of the Virgin Mary (visited by many Orthodox pilgrims for its miracle working icon).
The area of Agiassos and Mount Olympus is a paradise for active visitors. There are numerous ancient pilgrims’ paths and donkey trails through old olive groves, with stunning views over the surrounding scenery.
