The Turkish invasion and the passage of time caused losses and
changes to the town of Mytilini. Unlike these town and country
houses - which were designed to answer to the rudimentary needs
- were the "towers" with their stone construction, their height, the
small fanlights and the projecting balcony to give more room on the
upper floor.

Such towers can still be found today, as also several mansions in
excellent condition as the Alepoudellis (Elytis) and Papadopoulos.
Characteristic of these houses are the Ionic and Doric pillars, facades
and niches.

A basic characteristic of almost all the settlements on Lesvos is their
"urban" nature. In many places one still finds the row house system
and courtyards are entirely absent. In the cases where there are
courtyards they are surrounded by high walls and completely cut
from the street.
