  • 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.
  • Nice small typical greek chapel, just placed high up a cliff. But the chapel itself is nothing special3
  • A must to climb, scary stairs, unique view, wind and sea
  • Church used in nama mia
  • 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.
