Skiathos Guide

Located in the Northern Sporades group of islands, the Greek island of Skiathos lies in the north west Aegean Sea to the east of the Pelion Peninsular in Magnesia on the Greek mainland, and also to the west of the island of Skopelos, which can clearly be seen on a clear day. Most of the towns on the island are located in the south and south west as the terrain is less rugged than that of the northern parts of the island. The island's main town, also called Skiathos, is located in the north east of the island whose coastline is characterised by capes, inlets and peninsulars.

The Monastery of the Annunciation is a popular tourist attraction on the island and is sometimes called the Evangelistria Monastery which is dedicated to the Virgin Mary. It is located around 4 km to the north of Skiathos Town on a hillside but unfortunately some of the monastery's buildings, which were built in 1794, are now in ruins. However, the church and accommodation buildings have been restored.

Skiathos is connected by conventional ferry and high speed ferry to Thessaloniki, the other islands in the Sporades, the islands of the Cyclades and to Crete.


Glossa Guide

Located on the Greek island of Skopelos, one of the Northern Sporades group of islands, is the town of Glossa which is the island's second largest town. It is around 25 km to the north of the island's capital called Hora. Glossa is characterised by its traditional charm and the ruins of ancient towers and buildings that have been discovered around the area. Papadiamantis called Glossa "the tall village", perhaps because it is located in the mountains and is around 300 meters above sea level and commands lovely views and has managed to remain largely unspoilt. The town has many narrow streets where it is common to still see women dressed in traditional outfits called "foustanes".

The town's narrow streets, typical Macedonian houses, with two floors, wooden balconies and tiled roofs, is regarded by many to be one of the most beautiful villages in the Sporades group of islands.

Skopelos is connected by ferry to Volos, Agios Konstantinos, Skiathos, Alonnisos and Thessaloniki during the summer.
