See why Skyros owes its name to its famous Skyrian colourful stones in Skyros town, the island’s capital, or Hora ( meaning main town in Greek, the naming used on many islands). Spectate at the Dionysus Festival, when shepherds, dressed as goats, dance around the cobbles of Hora. Choose among many symbols of Skyros in Hora for your best memory: wood carved furniture, painted ceramics, jasmine smells, forests, or one of many golden sand beaches.
