The Roman Aqueduct
Probably during the reign of the Emperor Agrippa, at the end of the 1st century BC, the Roman rulers of Lesvos
built an aqueduct to bring water along a convoluted 26km route from the springs of Mt Olympos
around the Gulf of Gera to Mitilene.
The main surviving, and restored, section of seventeen three tiered arches spans a shallow valley near Moria,
a few kilometres north of Mitilene.
Further away, hidden at the bottom of a deep valley in the forest at Paspala near Lambou Mili,
there are the bottom arches of another span bridging a small river.
It is about 2km along an unsurfaced forest road, which leaves the main road
(there is a small signpost in Greek and English)
about 3˝km west of Lambou Mili in the direction of Kalloni.
Both of these spectacular sites feature in 'On Foot - Circular Walks on Lesvos'.
