Agios Ioannis Sto Kastri, Skopelos

(460+ reviews on the web)
Beach Nature / Park
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.
