Photographer's Note

Myrina is the "Chora" capital of Lemnos Island with the main port and two districts between her castle.
Romeikos Gialos (Ρωμαίικος Γιαλός): North of the castle is one of the two main districts of the city with magnificent neoclassical mansions, all built in the second half of the 19th century. It was the Greek quarter years of Ottoman rule and was named as opposed to the Turkish Yialos, located east of the castle and the place where the Turks lived. These houses testify to the power and wealth of the inhabitants of Lemnos who worked as traders in the cosmopolitan centers of the season, Odessa, Trieste and Alexandria.
