Getting around Schinoussa, one of the most picturesque and peaceful islands of Small Cyclades is a unique experience. Its natural beauty has won over many visitors and so far archeologists have discovered several ancient sites and Byzantine churches.
It is worth visiting the church of Panagia Akathi located in Panagia, the heart of the island. On 15th August, a great festival is held with food and wine. In fact many women in Schinoussa were named Akathi to honor the local church. Close to the main town, in Mesaria village lies the church of Evangelismos tis Theotokou and other chapels in the wider region.
