    Perhaps the most spectacularly sited church on the Island, with steep steps up to the chapel and a hermitage nearby. Also around here are some very nice beaches.

Skopelos Warnings and Dangers

    As usual with places with hot climate, there are a lot of insects around on Skopelos - wasps and horseflies are the ones that worried us !
    I know that the general wisdom is that they are harmless unless you agitate them by waving them away frantically, but that was not the case here.
    My wife was stung twice by wasps when she wasn't even aware of their presence, i.e. they simply landed on her and stung immediately !
    Also there are some huge horseflies with green eyes that apparently can bite half your leg off (according to the guy that cleaned our swimming pool). When one of those landed in the vicinity (sounding like a WW2 bomber), I didnt stick around long enough to find out !
