Here are some facts for Explorers: Skyros is an the Island whose history reaches far back to the mythological times. Theseus, Lykomidis, Axill and Neoptolemos are people of mythology which are inseparably connected with the history of the island. The Neolithic period, the classical period, the Roman and subsequently the Ottman empire and the invasion of pirates all shaped the islands history, a habitat with archaic roots that live on still today in the traditional customs and practices. In the two museums of the island – the ethnology and the archaeological museum – many documents and monuments of this important past can be found. Skyros is the largest island of the island complex of the Northern Sporades and is characterized by a unique scenic feature. The northern part of the island is rich in dense pine forests and scenic areas, in the southern part there is a shepherd landscape with dense bush vegetation, which offers a haven of rare beauty for goats, sheep and the unique skyrianic pony. The most picturesque point of the island is without doubt the Xora, the main village of the island, with its houses shaped in the form of an amphitheater huddled against a 179m high rock. On the top of the rock is an old castle, where you can enjoy a great view over the vast blue Aegaen Sea. Remarkable is the construction of the castle, as it is only accessible from one side; all the other 3 sides drop steeply down to the sea and offered a natural defense against attacking enemies. Next to the castle is the monastery of St. George, who is the patron of the island; it’s another magnificent viewpoint not to be missed. Some of the beaches of the island offer their very own aesthetic beauty. On the north side these are the beaches of Athitsa, Agalipa (which is reachable only by boat), Agios Petros, Gyrismata and Pefkos. The south side offers the long beach of Kalamitsa and Kolymbada.
