Discover Skyros Island
Located almost in the center of the North Aegean, Skyros and its numerous (more than 30) satellite islets form a small, rather isolated archipelago. It is a place that fascinates with the intense landscape contrasts, as the verdant and pine-covered northern part reminds the Northern Sporades, while the dry and rocky southern part resembles more of the Cyclades. Together with the unique ecological and cultural features of the island, Skyros is a destination with a unique identity.
The traditional settlement of Chora is the core of the social life of the island and the place where administrative and other public services are located. The settlement spreads mainly on the western side of a hill with a steep rocky outcrop, on the top of which is the fortified Kastro (Castle). Within the Castle is built the monastery of Aghios Georgios.
