history of skiathos

    Skiathos took part in wars against the Persians and in 478 BC, became a part of the Athenian Alliance.Later was occupied by Alexander the Great and then by the Romans. In 1204 was conquered by the Venetians and in 1583 by the Turks. It was then that the inhabitants of the old town, built on the site of present-day Skiathos, abandoned it and constructed on the north side of the island the famous Kastro, perched on a nearly invisible rock.
    During the Greek War of Independence of 1821, many warriors from Thessaly opposite,took refuge on the island.Skiathos was liberated in 1823. In 1830, the local people, left the historic Kastro and rebuilt Chora
.
Skiathos was one of the unknown paradises to be discovered.       
Skiathos is one of the most beautiful islands in Greece. Upon first seeing it visitors must think: “how can such a small island have all this beauty?”. When you are getting to know the island, first of all, you have to pay a visit to its picturesque and cosmopolitan Chora.

During the day, you can enjoy a hanging around into its narrow alleys, which are filled with vitality every summer. Here you have a lot of things to see and to do. You can visit for example the lovely small peninsula Bourtzi, situated between the two harbors of Chora plenty of pine trees and the ruins of a wall of an old castle. Or you can visit one of the beautiful churches here, like the impressive Treis Ierarches, the cathedral church in the upper part of the town. You can either enjoy your lunch or your dinner in one of the fine tavernas. And for nightlife, be sure! Chora does not sleep until early in the morning! A large number of clubs, pubs, bars and discotheques are waiting for your night amusement!Text taken from Toubis Editions      visit http://achladies.apartments.googlepages.com

    Superb blog! Do you have any suggestions for aspiring writers?
    I’m hoping to start my own website soon but I’m a little lost on everything.
    Would you propose starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option?
    There are so many choices out there that I’m completely overwhelmed ..
    Any recommendations? Kudos!
