  • Quite frankly, it is irrelevant whether the chapel looks like you’re expecting it to for one simple reason - what an absolutely stunning place. The view and experience itself are completely unique. If...  more »
  • The place is amazing... the staircase, the views, ring Bell arrived, the small chapel... everything worthwhile! In terms of the rock and the chapel I recommend to go early in the morning or at dusk (best views and fewer people). It is the staircase and the views of the film but not the Chapel, which is very small and where the majority goes and lights a candle. It can be reached by bus and then taxi (there is no direct) excursion, or auto. It's free, keep in mind that you have to climb more than 200 steps, so it is advisable to bring comfortable shoes and water. You can go to the beach, is not very large and where vi is not organized (no umbrellas, anything).

  • I visited the church of Agios Loannis because my partner wanted to see the church that was used to shoot the mama Mia wedding scene. I didn’t think that it would really considering that camera tricks made the church look 20 times bigger than it actually is. What I did find was a church on a remote hill in Greece that had so much character and surrounded by the most beautiful azure water and the best sunny weather ever. This was the reason I ended up in Skopelos but Skopelos turned out to be a great place to spend summer in the Mediterranean.
  • This place is just stunning. The reality cannot be expressed in pictures and will take your breath away, when you visit the place. The place has limited space and to get there is a challange as only narrow mountain road leads to this place.
  • Great view , great location. We ve had a wonderful experience and took so many beautiful photos there
  • Magic place !! A must see in Skopelos! Also the beach nearby is worth visiting! Clear waters and such green scenery ! Enjoy
  • One of the highlights of Skopelos, great views.
