10 reasons to visit Skyros
The picturesque country of the island
The Anemoessa (windy island) of the Aegean, as Skyros is described by Homer, is an island with strong contrasts that fascinate the visitor. It combines the green color of the Sporades in its northern part with the Cycladic character in its southern part. The picturesqueness of Chora, the traditional cobblestones, the Scyrian houses full of jasmine and bougainvillea, the whitewashed terraces, and the smells literally “capture” you. Walk along the picturesque cobbled streets of Chora from the Castle and Monastery of Agios Georgios to the main square and Brook Square and feel the pulse of the island. Don’t miss visiting the shops on the cobblestones and buying souvenirs, thyme honey, and almonds, and stop for a tsipouro with Skyrian meze in the cafes on the main cobblestone street.
