Glossa is a small town perched on the northwest side of Skopelos Island. It is a picturesque town with traditional architecture. The houses of Glossa are primarily two-storey buildings with ceramic roofs and wooden balconies.

It has beautiful views of the Aegean Sea, the island of Skiathos and in the back you can faintly see PIlio. Glossa and the area surrounding Glossa has a lot of olive groves, almond trees and plum trees. It also has a lot of fresh-water springs. There is a rare species of goats named “Glosses” that roam on the cliffs of Glossa which has been known for the quality of the wool they produced.

In the center of the village the main church Koimiseos tis Theotokou is special because of its unique bell tower. Glossa has got a Folklore Museum where you can observe local culture.
