Theophilos Museum (Akrotiri, near Mytilini Town)

This beautiful museum is dedicated to Lesvos’ own 19thC folk artist, Theophilos Hatzimihail. His work reflects everyday life in the 1900s, including the difficulties of poverty, and his subject matter centers on history, mythology, nature and everyday life. Known for his vibrant colors and emotions, they’re priceless today. Theophilos painted on walls around Lesvos, so look for some of his work as you explore.
