Sightseeing in the town of Skiathos

Apart from the house of Alexandros Papadiamantis, where you may see a lot of souvenirs and objects of everyday use of this great Greek author, the town has a lot of sightseeing.

Of course, the most outstanding among them is the overgrown area of Bourtzi, with the ruins of the medieval castle, the old buildings of neoclassic style and the municipal café with the excellent view of the sea and of the island. You may also see the memorial in honor of the submarine “Lambros Katsonis” which sank in short distance from the island in 1943, after it had heroically combated the Germans. You may also see the Folk Exhibition with several objects, utensils and costumes from the past. Don’t miss to have lunch or dinner at the restaurant established at the old windmill! On your way to the lagoon you will find another old windmill, just by the sea. And, when you arrive at the area of the lagoon, you will have the chance to watch the hundreds of migrant birds of this interesting biotope. Also you may go to Punta, a place full of pine trees and some hotels; from Punta you will enjoy a wonderful view.

Skiathos has many churches worth seeing. The most important among them is the Cathedral, built in the 19th century and celebrated in the name of the Three Hierarchs. The church is a three-aisled basilica with a tower bell of very interesting style and an exhibition of old icons and wood carved items, coming from various churches of the island. You may also visit the church of Panaghia, dedicated to Virgin Mary, with the stone built tower bell, the church of Aghia Triada (Holy Trinity) and the ruins of the ancient walls nearby, the church of Aghios Nicolaos (St. Nicolas) with a clock on the top and the church of Aghios Fanourios, situated one kilometer far from the town upon a height with excellent view.

From the port of the town you may get any of the excursion boats which will bring you to remote beaches inaccessible from the land; or you may choose to make tour of the island, during which you will see parts of the island which you would not see otherwise and which will remain in your memory for long.
