A walk through Mytilini’s old market

Right behind our hotel is the town’s central market. Crossing the stone pavement, you head towards the old market and the old town of Mytilini. A beautiful route for lots of interesting sightseeing. The Yeni Mosque and Tsarsi Hamam show us that this was a major centre during the Ottoman era, and many beautiful Christian churches are situated around them. Also well worth a visit are the Metropolitan church, Agioi Theodoroi, Agioi Apostoloi, and Agios Symeon. Along the length of the old market, there are many shops with excellent ceramics, and antique stores where you can browse. The route takes you to the old port, where the statue of the Asia Minor Mother stands.
