    A very hot ride to the top of Skopos with a visit to the Monastery. Very old and interesting which dates back to the 1400's.  more »

    Located on a mountain from where you can see a fantastic scenery and also the island of Kefalonia! hard to get there so I recommend avoiding going into moped! but worth it definitely not just the landscape but also for the Church well kept and evocative with a cottage near where there is a table and a diary where you can leave a signature! now we too are in the history of Zakynthos! you go!

    A really wonderful place to visit!You need a car and the road is a rather tough earth road with many holes but once on the top it really is worthwhile. The small church and its annexes are beautiful. ...  more »

    Beautiful ruins of a monastery, the church is still there. You can climb to the top of the mountain just behind the monastery to have a great view of the island.

    6 km to the top from Kalamaki - excellent trail running experience and an awesome view of both shores.

    Descendant of the sun. Hot serie in Korea. I love Song Joong Ki.

    This is one of the "must visit" places on Zakynthos. It took us a lot of effort to get there but it really is worth every step of climbing. Near the mountain top is located a small place run by aged and very kind Greek couple that serve you a glass of water right after they see your bone-tired body in front of the gate to Panagia Skopiotissa. Remember to buy something cold to dring for that life saving glass of water!

    The highest point of the island. Church Of The Mother Of God Strazhnicy. It is difficult to walk under scorching sun. Stunning views of the island. Even in the way a lot of beauty. One person works in a coffee shop (200 meters in front of the Church) and she opens the Church. Very friendly
