Monastery of Agios Ioannis

Cradled in the lush green nature of the island, the Monastery of Agios Ioannis or the Hidden one is located on the back side of the mountain Kounistra, about 15-minute car ride from the harbour of Skiathos.

The monastery was built in 1895 by Alexandros Moraitidis, cousin of Alexandros Papadiamantis, who was a philologist and a writer born in Skiathos.
