Monasteries excursion

10:00 - 14:00

Discover the charm of Skiathos, known for its rich religious heritage. While only two monasteries remain today, they hold great significance. Join us on a scenic journey from the island's north to the east, where we'll first encounter the Monastery of Kounistra. Beloved by locals, this small monastery hosts an annual walk from Skiathos town, uniting the entire community in honouring the Virgin Mary.

Our next stop is the renowned Monastery of Evangelistria, considered the birthplace of the Greek flag. Step into its newly renovated premises and witness a working distillery that produces exclusive wine and limited quantities of "tsipouro." Explore the museum, housing fascinating historical artifacts that shed light on Skiathos' past and the Greek Revolution.

Do not forget to bring your camera, wear sunscreen, a hat, and appropriate clothes to cover your shoulders.
