The sights of Skyros
Many different choices for each visitor.
On the island we find several valuable archaeological sites, most notably the Castle located above Chora. This was the ancient acropolis and the seat of the ancient king of Lykomedes. More precisely, at the location of Spilia Andreiotis, is where Lykomedis has killed the king of Athens, Theseus. Today, almost nothing is preserved from the ancient acropolis.
Churches and monasteries
There are several medieval churches on the island, such as Agios Georgios of Skyros, on a tall cliff above the sea built by Nikiforos Fokas in the 10th century, the church of Panagia of Kitsos and many others churches, as well as monasteries.
The statue of Rupert Bout
The trademark of Chora is the square with the statue of the poet Rupert Bük.
