About the neighbourhood
The only town on the island and a thriving cosmopolitan centre, Skiathos Town can accommodate all tastes. In ancient times the Persians, Greeks and Macedonians fought battles in the seas around the island. In the 13th century it was the Venetians that controlled Skiathos and in the 18th century when under Ottoman rule, the town - and specifically the Evangelistria Monastery - played a part in the Greek War of Independence. In the 19th century age of sail, the island became an important Aegean ship building centre because of the abundance of pine trees which were almost wiped out as a result. The town has a population of about 7,000 and is very attractive, with its jumble of red-roofed houses and climbing stone-paved streets. During the day
