Limnos is located in the northeast of the Aegean Sea between Athos on Chalkidiki and the islands of Samothraki and Lesbos. It is the seventh largest island in Greece, but not as touristy. The island of Limnos, also known as Lemnos, has an area of ​​477 km2, about 21,000 inhabitants and the highest mountain is Skopia (Vigla) of 470 meters. A third of the residents live in the little capital Myrina.

The low vegetation, the volcanic rocks, the stone farmhouses, the windmills and the churches and monasteries give the island a unique beauty. Limnos is also called the island of Hephaestos, the god of iron.

Zeus, supreme god, during a fight with his wife Hera threw their son Hephaestos from Mount Olympus to Lemnos. There he taught the population the craft of ironsmith. Nowadays fine honey and wines are produced on the island.

The island had more than 6,000 years ago residents, witness the excavations in the eastern city of Poilochni. This is probably the oldest city in Europe. Many peoples and countries have dominated the island over the centuries.

The first and second world war did not pass by Limnos either, given the two cemeteries for 1,200 foreign soldiers in Moudros and Portianou. At 430 meters, the Skopia is the highest mountain on the island and lies 10 kilometers north of Myrina.
