Welcome to the green island: Skopelos

Pluralism / Jul 17, 2018

Skopelos is one of the most famous islands of Sporades and one of the reasons is its green colour!

Emerald waters, dreamy coasts, Pelion architecture and  monasteries will welcome you at an authentic island atmosphere:  Skopelos.

Skopelos has three main ports: Skopelos, Agnontas and Glossas. Chora is the capital of the island, located on the northern coast in a closed bay and its beautiful city spreads amphitheatrically around the castle.

Around the island ...

The tour of the island starts from the amphitheatrically built Chora with the picturesque paved alleys, the scattered churches and the beautiful island houses with the blooming courtyards that surround the Castle. You can follow the route starting from Panagitsa of Pyrgos at the edge of the harbor and enjoy the view all the way, but also from the top of the Castle to the settlement, the port and the chapel of Panagia Pyrgos.

Glossa, the second largest settlement on the island after Chora, is 25 km north of the island. Narrow alleys, tidy houses of traditional architecture and colorful corners make up her figure, while the surrounding area is of great archaeological interest due to the ancient towers and buildings that have been identified.
