This is a must visit whilst on Skiathos. Well maintained and beautifully kept. The place is a haven of tranquility. The museum is worth a visit as it has all sorts of exhibits and photographs including the history of the Greek flag.

We got the red monastery mini bus from the town, it's only 15 minutes away. The monastery grounds and church is free to go in, and 2 euros for the museum. Very peaceful, and great views. Worth a trip- there is a cafe at the...More
