Description

We meet at the blue and white Dimos, town hall, on the seafront for a short walk until we reach the steps leading up to the Panagia ston Pirgos, or the so-called Panagitsa church, which sits on the rocky outcrop where Peparethos, as ancient Skopelos was first known, was founded. This is a steep walk that will require walking shoes or sturdy sandals.Anyone with mobility concerns can still join in this walk by an easier route that we can explain at the office.When the tour reaches the highest spot of Skopelos Town, with views across to nearby Alonissos and, on clear days, Mount Athos in the distance, we arrive at the Anatoli taverna, where the renowned Xintaris family of musicians have made their rebetiko ‘Greek blues’ rightly famous. The Anatoli actually sits in the courtyard of the 13th century Venetian castle that was built on the ruins of Peparithos and which was later sacked by the pirate Barbarossa, ‘Redbeard’.From here we begin our walk back down to the town centre, and as you are in one of the oldest and friendliest communities in Skopelos don’t be surprised if people greet you as a neighbour.Our route back takes us towards the town’s main church, Christos, with its sunken courtyard and striking illuminated bell tower. There are also eight tiny chapels in the church precinct, which are well worth viewing.The walk continues down through the maze of alleys, squares and gardens that make up the oldest part of Skopelos and to the paralia, seafront, by which time you will probably be in need of a drink and something to eat.The award-winning Gialos taverna will provide a range of traditional and contemporary Greek dishes, in a selection of mezes-style plates you can select from, as well as some typical Greek wines, whites and reds, to accompany them. We can’t think of a better way to introduce you to the‘Greek Way’ here in Skopelos.
