The dense pine forests of Skopelos mix with the deep blue of the sea, creating a picture of amazing nature
beauty. This is an idyllic place to relax and enjoy. There are two places I recommend the most. First is the church of Agios Ioannis, where scenes of Mamma Mia were filmed. This small church is located in the region of Kastri, about 7 km east of Glossa. This is a lovely church that used to be the catholic of a monastery in the past. It stands on top of a rock and provides amazing view to the coasts of Skopelos and to Alonissos. This small church became famous where scenes of the movie "Mamma Mia" were filmed there. But after I visited there, I think they only take the outdoor shots, and the wedding itself was actually taken elsewhere. But it does not impair its beautiful view at all. The impressive rock is linked to the island with a narrow path and people have to climb 110 steep stairs to get to the top. A small beach is located next the rock (100-meter-away). The interior of the church has beautiful icons and old ecclesiastical items.
