Chestnut Festival in Agiasos

In November, a unique festival rouses locals and invites tourists to enjoy the event. Chestnuts from the huge chestnut trees of the Agiasos area are piled together and visitors have the opportunity to sample them for free, roasted or boiled, or purchase these delicious nuts from local producers. With thousands of visitors and tons of this tasty local product, the festival is now an institution for this mountain village of Lesvos, always accompanied by cultural events.
