In the island of Skyros visitors come across a great number of churches and chapels, inspiring monasteries and religious sites of great architectural interest. The Christian religion in Skyros appears from the 2nd century AD and goes on to the Byzantine years.
The monastery of Agios Georgios is the religious symbol of Skyros and the saint protector of the island. It stands on top of the castle overlooking the entire town and the sea. It possesses some rare icons and most of the finest churches are scattered around this monastery including Agios Athanasios.
In the winding streets of the capital lie several churches and picturesque chapels such as Agia Anna and Agios Ioannis. It certainly deserves your attention the church of Agios Mamas which stands at the top of the Mt Kohylas and the chapel of Agios Panteleimonas perched on a green hill, overlooking Pefkos village. At the edge of the coast lies the church of Agios Nikolaos and next to it lies the one of Agia Paraskevi and Agios Ermolaos.
Agios Nikolaos Church in Pouriá, at the northern edge of Molos Beach, is a well known monument of Skyros because of its particular way of construction. The church was in fact curved out from a rock.
