The Island

SAMOS ISLAND is one of the larget islands in the east Aegean. While Lesvos is the jewel of eastern Aegean, SAMOS is the rough-cut diamond. Samos, 490km2 in area. A strip of sea only a few kilometres wide seperates it from Turkey. The name SAMOS seems to derive from the very ancient root SAMA - which is related to heights and is justified by the island’s high mountain.
