Agia Paraskevi

Agia Paraskevi is one of Lesvos' last remaining traditional villages.

The village is named after the Church of Agia Paraskevi, which is found in a cave in one of the highest points of the town.

The town cemetery is also located here. Presumingly built over an old pagan temple, there is a well in the cave, and drinking the water from this well has been said to have conferred Virgin Mary's protection.

Agia Paraskevi is an old village that is becoming a powerful cultural and economic center for the island.

The village is known for its old mansions, unique architecture and for its festivals.

The village contains many traditional houses that shows the Venetian and Roman occupation of the island and is a rare, non-commercialized, non-tourist village — locals sit at tavernas that line the main street and socialize. The people are quite friendly and get around on foot; however, the automobile has slowly started making an entrance into village life.
