The village of Kapi on the island of Lesbos in Greece
Kapi Lesbos

Kapi is a village on the road from Petra to Sykaminea, not far from Mantamados in the northeast of the island. The distance to the capital Mitilini is 40 kilometers and to Molyvos it's 25 kilometers. The main road changes into a narrow cobble path once inside the village. There are many new houses being build in the village of Kapi. There is a nice church in the village that is surrounded by a white wall, and at the edge of Kapi stands an old factory with a high chimney, which is most likely an old ouzo factory. The name Kapi derives from the word "kapes", a tobacco brand that used to be cultivated here by the Turks during the Ottoman occuplation.
