Tourism

In the Municipality of Gera there are traditional buildings and old mansions of exquisite architecture, such as Vrana’s building, that houses the town hall in Papados. At Messagros, in an old bakery, remarkable parts of a wall painting by the famous painter Theofilos are preserved in a very good condition. Significant monuments are also the water fountains decorating the villages’ squares such as the Turkish marble sculpted water fountain in Papados and the one of Arabic style at Messagros. Moreover, in Messagors there is a well preserved mosque. The villages’ churches are also worth mentioning, most of which were built during the Turkish occupation. The wood carved basilica of Skopelos is a typical example, where Early Christian catacombs are well preserved under the church. Recently at Skopelos, a Turkish school was turned to guesthouse. Important remains of a prehistoric settlement have been found at the location “Halatses”. It is possible that “Iera Poli” (Sacred City) was located at this spot. According to Plinius it was the second most important town of Aeolian Lesvos. Archaeological finds have also been revealed at the location of “Manna”. The remains of the ancient settlements emerge to the surface even today, all along the gulf’s coast.

Furthermore, the Gulf of Gera is a beautiful natural monument and one of the most beautiful of the Mediterranean. It is Gera’s soul and breath. The inhabitants’ life was and still is connected to the gulf. Its mouth towards the open sea, like a fiord, offers a magical view with the small islets standing there as sentinels at the channel, and the silvercoloured olive trees reaching the sea. The lacy beaches and the tiny coves sitting in the gulf, as well as in the Aegean’s side, are of infinite beauty. The most beautiful and developed beach is that of Tarti with crystal clear waters, at the feet of a green hill. Each summer, thousands of tourists visit it and enjoy fresh fish at the picturesque taverns. The coves “Tsilia”, “Ligonari”, “Tsafi”, “Fara” and “Gialiotissa” are of equal beauty.

Since 1996, the beaches of "Evreiaki" and "Tarti" have been participating in the international programme "BLUE FLAGS OF EUROPE". "Blue Flag" is an international quality symbol. It may be the most widely recognised eco-label, and each year, since 1987, it has been awarded to every coast and marina meets strict specifications in 38 countries of the world. The clear seawater is not the only criterion. In total 27 criteria should be covered, concerning water bathing quality, organisation, information, bathers’ and visitors’ safety and environmental protection of coasts and coastal areas. The Foundation for Environmental Education (FEE) is the International Coordinator of the programme. In Greece, the Hellenic Society for the Protection of Nature (HSPN), the oldest environmental organisation of Greece has been the competent agent for this programme since 1992. http://www.eepf.gr/

Perama has the greatest variety of night entertainment: picturesque taverns with traditional cuisine, bars overwhelmed by youngsters. There are two hotel units in the area of Evreiaki, as well as many rooms to let for the visitors.

Besides the natural beauty of the region, the Municipality of Gera has a longstanding and rich historical and cultural heritage. It is worth visiting it.
