Welcome to Myrina
In summer Myrina comes to life, with shops selling traditional foods, handicrafts and more in its bustling agora (market). Whitewashed stone houses, old-fashioned barber shops and kafeneia (coffee houses), sitting among weather-worn neoclassical mansions, create a relaxed old-world charm.
The town, like Limnos in general, is mostly frequented by Greek tourists, lending a distinct Hellenic flavour to the waterfront nightlife. Above the town, on the castle's overgrown slopes, it's a different story: here, shy, fleet-footed deer dart about after dark, and even venture down to the agora on winter nights.
