About the architecture of Skiathos, Greece

Despite the tourist development, the traditional architecture of Skiathos has not faded or lost its authentic style. Skiathos Town, one of the most picturesque towns in the Greek islands, embraces the port and charms visitors with its picturesque atmosphere, the traditional whitewashed houses, the mansions with tiled roofs, the old churches and narrow alleys. White is the dominant colour and houses can be divided into noble properties and farm houses which exist in total harmony to these days. Beautiful facades occupied by the imposing entrance doors, tall bell towers rising over the streets, small houses built amidst the lush forests and picturesque churches are some of the island's unique characteristics.

Skiathos Town is home to many interesting buildings, like the house of Papadiamantis which is now a museum. Some of the island's narrow streets can only be accessed on foot and there you have a chance to enjoy the lovely peaceful quarters away from the busy streets. Among the things that are worth seeing in Skiathos is the Medieval Castle, located on the northern side of the island. The 17th century monasteries in the centre of Skiathos island also present a major interest for their interior decoration and historical importance.

Visitors can enjoy their stay in many of the traditional hotels that have respected the traditional architecture.
