Skyros

Skyros (Greek: Σκύρος) is the southernmost and largest island of the Northern Sporades. It is located east of Evia, which is 35 km away and is surrounded by many islands, such as Skiropoula, Sarakino, Platy, Myrmigonissia, Vrykolakonissia etc. A characteristic feature of Skyros is the strong contrasts between the pine-covered northern part and the rocky south. The first settlement that the visitor faces to Skyros is the port of Linaria. In the East is the capital of the island, Chora or Skyros, which is built amphitheatrically on the slopes of a hill, in the shade of a Medieval Castle and the Byzantine Monastery of Ai - Giorgi. On the south side of Skyros, where the environment is wild and reminiscent of a mountain, the Skyrian horses, a trademark of Skyros, formerly lived in extinction. Skyros is famous for its ceramics, wood-carved furniture and its own internal architecture, as well as its agricultural products, which are excellent because of the great use of traditional production methods.
