Greece | Glossa, Skopelos – The Village on A Hill.

Glossa, Skopelos, Greece

I’ve said it before but I’ll say it again, I love old towns. There is nothing more mesmerizing for me than being able to step back in time through the narrow cobblestone alleys of old towns. Glossa is just one of these beautiful old villages that I’ve seen all around Europe, a continent which boasts a lot of these charming places. Perched on top of a hill, built in ampitheatre-like fashion – it does make you wonder of how it was built during those times without the modern technology that we now have.

Walking around Glossa as a tourist felt to me like I’m intruding the personal space of the locals who live there. It’s the second biggest settlement in Skopelos but it remains to be untouched by the mass-tourism the country is embracing more and more. So basically, what you see in Glossa is the raw and authentic Old Town – not conformed towards money-making tourist-oriented businesses.

They do have some of the famous restaurants in Skopelos though, one of which is where we had our dinner – Plaza To Louki, famous for its Greek gyros and the likes. It’s the first restaurant that you come across with as you enter the town of Glossa – offering an outdoor seating with a commanding view of the sea. I really loved it, the food and the location of the restaurant.

It was just me who explored the town of Glossa as The Greek Mister and his friend would rather enjoy the view while having their beer than to walk around. I took loads of photos in this place, I’m having a hard time now which ones to post on this entry as every corner or this place is picturesque. The simplicity of the whole town makes it really beautiful to my eyes. I hope they’d be able to keep it this way for a long time.

    I love Old Towns, I am always drawn to it and yes – Europe has a lot of those which is why I prefer traveling there more than any continents in the world. :p

    Us too! Our travel style has changed drastically over the years. Giving preference to the lesser known places to avoid the flock of tourists as much as we can. I guess we’ve become more matured in terms of traveling. 🙂
