About the Village
Afalonas is located 7 km north of the city of Mytilene in an incline of 100 m that gives it the lovely views across the straits to Turkey. The name comes from the words "Upper Alonia" (Afalonas) that existed at the top of the hill. It is one of the oldest villages of the island and its history starts from the ancient times, according to the findings identified in the locations “Katho” and “Chalasmata” .
In the village there is a three-aisled basilica dedicated to the Virgin Mary and the church of the Holy Trinity is situated at the foot of the eponymous mountain / location Spathi. It is believed that there was a monastery in the location in the old days.
It is worth visiting the place "Tsamia" where in the old days they were great festivals on the Wednesday after Easter (Lamprotetarti) and August 15. The "Tsamia" (pine) were planted by members of the organization "Atlas" that acted against the Turks. They used to practise and exercise there, therefore even today the location is called “Gymnastirio” . The village festival / feast takes place on the day of the Holy Spirit in the location “Spathi”
