TREASURES OF SKOPELOS

Skopelos captivates its visitors with both the beauty of the natural landscape and the magical world of legends that accompanies the island’s history.

Skopelos’ first name in ancient times was Peparithos. This name comes from the first inhabitant of the island Peparithos. Peparithos, along with his brother Stafylos, sons of Ariadne (princess of the Minoan empire in Crete) and god Dionysus (god of wine and vineyards), first settled in Skopelos. Hence the famous “Peparithos Wine”. There was a claim that the locals were even using this exquisite wine in the construction of temples and houses.

Many of the legends of Skopelos refer to well-hidden treasures.

The TREASURE ON PALOUKI MOUNTAIN

One of the hidden treasures of Skopelos is on Palouki Mountain, right opposite Skopelos Town. Many monasteries exist on Palouki Mountain.
