There is a tenacity to tradition on Skyros which comes of the island being so isolated. Here the islanders proudly preserve their music and dance, their style of domestic decoration, their customs of cheese-making and horse-breeding and their traditional festivals.
Its geography is almost that of two different islands. With its varied and beautiful scenery of shore and mountains, its archaeological wealth and its pretty chora, and the evocative grave of the poet Rupert Brooke, Skyros lacks little to suit a traveller’s changing moods and needs.
This is a chapter from Blue Guide Greece the Aegean Islands: what to see, where to stay and eat, history, archaeology, art, culture, leisure. With superb, award-winning maps. Written and edited by a team of three experts: historian, art historian and archaeologist, two of whom lead cultural tours in Greece. "Blue Guides still hold the cultural high ground" Sunday Times.
