At Sigri a young couple make the first Lesvian home crafted and special flavored beer, named Nissiopi / Sedusa *(blond / red), we suggest you to try! In the afternoon we will visit Skala Eressos, the name of this place is connected with Eressos whom was the son of the mythic king Makara. The first residents were called Pelasgi, after them it was the Achaeans and then the Aeolan sailors. At the ending of the 17th century it was relocated at the inner side of the island to avoid the pirates invasion. Eressos was a big commercial center and their products were exported also in Egypt. Sappho, the great lyrical poet and the philosophers Theophrastos and Phanas were born there. We will have a walk along the beach and we will have the opportunity to admire its statue.
