    Quick glance at photographs uploaded by users on TripAdvisor, I fear that there is a lot of confusion among the Evangelistria monastery, the largest and most visited of the island, and that here actually in question, namely that of Kounistra, Kounistria or Eikonistria (it should also be said that the different spellings used by the cartels and the maps do not help to uniquely identify it). The monastery is situated on the high ground in the middle of the island and, nearby, you can enjoy a great view towards Northwest. This is a small group of religious buildings in excellent condition, kept flawlessly from an old lady. Interesting wooden iconostasis of the Church, like all those of the major ecclesiastical architecture of the Sporades. After your visit you can enjoy some relaxation in the Arbor enjoying the company of beautiful cats indulged, the true masters of Skiathos.

Where to stay in Skiathos

Although most visitors to Skiathos flock to one of the island's beach resorts, staying outside the tourist-driven areas allows you to choose from less expensive rooms without compromising on comfort and proximity to the beach. Consider a self-catering apartment or small villa just outside Skiathos Town, or look for a budget-friendly room in one of the city's family-run inns. Another quiet and affordable alternative, the small settlements scattered along the island's coastline offer simple lodgings and plenty of privacy within driving distance of major urban attractions.
