Kastro Ke Medieval Ekklisia, Skiathos
(4.5/5 based on 340+ reviews on the web)
Take a step back in time by visiting the ruins of the ancient city of Kastro Ke Medieval Ekklisia. A thriving town between the 12th and 19th centuries, the cliff-side settlement overlooks the spectacular rocky beaches below. It's believed that the city was once home to 300 houses and 22 churches, but today only one church can be seen, along with a few restored houses. Explore the town and enjoy the views; consider combining your visit with a stop at the beach below, where you can grab a meal or drink at the on-site restaurant. The walk up can be quite steep, so wear comfortable walking shoes or rent a bike or car. The site is also notably uneven in many places, which may pose difficulties for those with mobility issues.

  • We visited IL Kastro by land and early in the morning, before the excursion boats have applied. Be sure to recommend you. You get an impression of life at pirate times and has super views.

  • It is often in the desk together with the Lalaria. Beach with tiny pebbles and blacks, almost like it was sand. Very very bad. Tiny beach where there is a chance to take a brisk walk. Accessible only by boat. Bar service available for lunch. Recommended! Often on trips together to Lalaria. Beach with tiny pebbles and blacks, almost like sand. Very very bad. Petite beach where there is a chance to make a good walk. Reachable only by boat. bar service available for lunch. Recommended!

  • Nobody should miss the experience of visiting the enchanting Castle. The Group visited, walked amid the remnants of medieval buildings and I lit candle in the gorgeous chapel with a picturesque courtyard. There he served us coffee and told us the very beautiful stories of the Lord Louis ... attached to the place, the scenery, the history of the island. Worth the effort to complete the path with a descent to the beautiful beach.
