The beautiful Skopelos town is located in the northern part of the island. The picturesque town of Skopelos is built amphitheatrically and extends from the Castle to the harbor below. Chora remained faithful to tradition and unchanged over time. As a result in 1978, it even won the title of “traditional settlement”.

The houses in Chora are built in very short distances from each other creating a maze of cobblestone streets. In each courtyard and on each balcony the gardens are adorned with ornate bougainvilleas, geraniums and other fragrant flowers!

Walking along the magnificent cobbled streets, among the houses, the whitewashed courtyards and the paved alleys you will find many small churches. Residents of Skopelos, always respecting their faith and religion, keep the churches in excellent condition. Skopelos Town itself is an attraction.
