Skyros Festivals & Cultural Events

Skyros island still remains one of the least-known destinations in Greece. Preserving this kind of anonymity, the locals are mostly involved in the organizing of religious feasts which play a major role in the life of Skyros. Glorious celebrations are held to honor the saints where participation is free.
