Skiatho's Churches.

The Island has quite a few lovely little churches scattered about in the hills and villages.

One thing that was perhaps a little unusual about the churches on Skiathos was that nearly all of them were open so that you could look inside. Also another feature was that many of them have a small living area which you can take a look at - these churches in some cases almost seemed to be mini-monasteries. Note these churches are not shown in any particular order but we have indicated where they are located.

Skiathos church of Aghios Ioanis Krifos Aghios Ioanis Krifos - Skiathos Island, Greece.

Aghios Ioanis Krifos Church on Skiathos, Greece.

This small church on Skiathos has a bit of fairly recent history. Apparently during the course of World War II this remote and well hidden church was used for secretly teaching local Greek children their own native language - something the German invaders tried to ban. The church is located south west of Mikros Aselinos Beach on the coastal track. Where the dirt track bends sharp left a path goes off on the right into the hillside. A delightful rocky path which climbs fairly easily and Aghios Ioanis Krifos is reached in around 6 or 7 minutes.

The following photos are of Aghios Ioanis which is located just south of Kastro. This is a particularly nice area where you could easily stop for a picnic since it is well shaded and also there is drinking water available from a spring.
