Bourtzi (Town Hall)
Part of the cultural centre, the Town Hall in Skiathos Town, or Bourtzi as it is also called, offers a truly unique location.
Perched on a small peninsula, the Bourtzi used to be a fort and divides the port into two distinct parts offering spectacular views. A small promontory in the corner of the old and new harbours in Skiathos Town, which is very scenic with boats and cafes of the harbour in the background.
