Because of its great history, Skyros hosts important sights. At Chora rises the imposing Venetian castle offering magnificent views of the Aegean Sea. Below the castle is placed the impressive monastery of St. George, which dates from the 10th century.

The archaeological site of Palamari in the northern part of the island will take you back in time to the Bronze Age and the early inhabitants of the island! Finally, both the Archaeological Museum in Chora and the Museum Manos Faltsaits (Folklore Museum) host many notable collections worth admiring.

While touring the island you will meet the famous ponies of Skyros which are quite small and have been designated as protected and endangered species.
