Mytilene Castle

Mytilene Castle

The project : A DIGITAL APPLICATION FOR THE DISPLAY AND THE PROMOTION OF THE CASTLE OF MYTILENE, THE TOWN’S ΒΥΖΑΝΤΙΝΕ ΑΝD OTTOMAN MONUMENTS, AND ASPECTS OF THE DAILY LIFE OF THE CASTLE AND THE SURROUNDING AREA, was funded by the NSRF (National Strategic Reference Framework – Operational Programme for the Digital Convergence 2007 – 2013). The project’s objective is the presentation of the Castle of Mytilene from a diachronic perspective, focusing on three phases:

a) the Byzantine period and more specifically around 600 AD, when the castle was built
b) during the late Byzantine period and more specifically around the middle of 15th century, when Lesvos was under the reign of the Gattilusi (or Gattelusi), right before the castle was captured by the Ottomans
c) during the late period of the Ottoman rule and more specifically in the early 20th century, before the unity of Mytilene and Lesvos with the Greek state.
