ARION - Molyvos International Guitar Festival
celebrates its 10 years of presence


It is Beauty that I served.
What greater way,
as bestowed upon me by the Muses
with their own power, to say:
Truly, in the times to come,
someone will be there to remember me


Molyvos is the land that gave birth to the famous kitharode and lyrical poet of the ancient world, Arion the Mithymnean. For all of us, the modern “Mythimnaeans”, the locals of Molyvos the cultural heritage of Lesvos cannot fit in a touristic guidebook, it is a priceless gift each of us carries with a sense of responsibility and joy. We feel it in our breath and we sense it in our gaze
