Sightseeing: 16 things to see in Skopelos island

The dense pine forests of Skopelos mix with the deep blue of the sea, creating a picture of amazing nature beauty. This is an idyllic place to relax in crystal beaches, such as Stafylos, Panormos, Agnondas, Milia and others. The picturesque towns of Skopelos and Glossa are great for a stroll, while hiking paths in the centre of the island lead to monasteries and chapels. Such a chapel is the most famous sightseeing in Skopelos today: the chapel of Saint John Kastri, also known as the Mamma Mia church, after shots of the famous Hollywood movie were filmed there.
