Lemnos or Limnos (Greek: Λήμνος; Ancient Greek: Λῆμνος) is a Greek island in the northern part of the Aegean Sea.
It is quite a big island off the beaten tourist trail. This island stands out for its endless sandy shores, mountainous villages, and interesting archaeological sites. Trivia: According to Mythology, the ancient Greek god Hephaestus used to run a chopper workshop on the island. That’s why the locals built a town named Hephaestia in his honor.
Sightseeing is one of the best things to do on this amazing island, as it is full of ancient monuments. The Ancient Kavirio is a must-visit. It is a place strongly related to secret religious ceremonies, so it has a mysterious charm. Right below the Ancient Kavirio, there’s the Cave of Philoctetes, a legendary hero who was abandoned there on his way to Troy.
