Nice building, shortest visit ever. We were on our way again after 5 min. Sorry, but not that extraordinary. Just a monestary, that's it. Nice building though.

This is the best restored monastery we found on the island. It is only few kilometres from down town, and reachable without transportation, if you love to walk.

Walk up T1 to reach these fantastic places. Good picnic spots and unspoilt buildings. A must for the fit and energetic by foot

This is on the road from Skopelos to Panoramas. I've marked it on the Trip Advisor map - hopefully they will update that soon. It's pretty small and you will probably only be there for 5-10mins - however, it's well worth a visit for a...More

St Riginos became a martyr of Christianity in 375 AD. He was decapitalized by the pagan Emperor Julian. One should read the inscription on top of the door to understand how old this church is. This is obvious from the columns that still stand there...More
