Architecture of Skyros Island

<< back
Skyros is built amphitheatrically on the top of a hill and it can’t be seen from the sea. Furthermore, it has 2.901 residents. White colour is dominant in the walls, roads and stairs. The roofs are the only places having another colour as they are covered in a specific kind of sand turning the area grey and protect buildings from the sun. The houses are like small cubes looking like a vivid mosaic, interrupted by Megali Strata street that leads to the Fortress.
