Agios Ioannis Sto Kastri, Skopelos
(4.6/5 based on 440+ reviews on the web)
Relax on a picturesque beach and visit a charming church at Agios Ioannis Sto Kastri. The small seaside area, boasting soft sand and turquoise waters, is home to the impressive St. John on the Castle church, perched upon a craggy rock. Hike up the 110 narrow steps that lead to the church to be rewarded with superb coastal views. Movie buffs may recognize the building from scenes of the hit film "Mamma Mia." Step inside to admire elaborate icons and ancient holy objects. If possible, make your trip to the beach by boat to best appreciate its dramatic scenery. The walk up to the church involves some sheer drops and sections without a handrail which may not be suitable for those uncomfortable with heights. Make Agios Ioannis Sto Kastri a centerpiece of your Skopelos vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Skopelos trip itinerary builder.

  • The best part of our trip to Skopelos was our visit to this small and so special Chapel. It is one of the points of interest that make you want to visit a place. When he sees someone loses his words from the beauty of the landscape. I think the pictures that pulled speak for themselves ... It is one of the places anyone seen during his lifetime. Best time to go is in the afternoon heat has fallen because the climb is difficult with the Sun!

  • Must to visit. The most famous place because of the final scene of the Musical Mamma Mia. To the top leads about 250 steps, the views are spectacular, but the bus ride a narrow, winding road is perhaps more exciting;)

  • A beautiful place to which leads quite Crete road) to get to the top, where there is a tiny church you have to climb after a significant number of steps:) With mountains views:)
