Mullion is the largest village on the Lizard and has shops, inns, cafes, restaurants, craft shops and art galleries. In the centre of the village is the 15th century church of St Mellanus. Mullion Cove has a pretty working harbour, protected from the winter gales that rage across Mount's Bay by two large sea walls. The harbour was completed in 1895 and financed by Lord Robartes of Lanhydrock as a recompense to the fishermen for several disastrous pilchard seasons. You can still see the old pilchard cellar and net store.
