Theophilos and Teriade Museums

The Theophilos Museum is located in the suburb of Vareia, just 3.5 km from the town of Mytilini.  In 1965, Teriade donated the space to the Municipality of Mytilini, together with 86 paintings by Theophilos from his private collection; paintings that draw on subjects from history, folklore and mythology. (Tel: +30 22510 41644)
