Episkopi Church

Episkopi Church Review

Take the vaulted passageway from St. George's Monastery courtyard to the ruined church of Episkopi, the former seat of the bishop of Skyros, built in 895 on the ruins of a temple of Athena. This was the center of Skyros's religious life from 1453 to 1837. You can continue up to the summit from here.
