This is one of the stunning locations used in the film Mamma Mia- you'll recognise the flower-filled courtyards and pretty cobbled streets.

Description

Skopelos Town is one of Greece's most treasured towns, on a par with Hydra and Simi. It scales the steep, low hills around the harbour and has the same winding, narrow paths that characterise the more famous Cycladic islands to the south.
Scattered on the slopes of the town are just a few of the island's 123 churches.
