Forming one of the Northern Sporades group of islands, the Greek island of Alonnisos lies in the Aegean Sea. The other islands in the Northern Sporades are Skiathos and Skopelos. The island's main village, also called Alonnisos, is located in the southern part of the island and is known locally as Chora. The bay at the southern end of the island is also called Alonnisos.
The island's emblem is the Mediterranean Seal which is a protected species. This protection was the reason for Greece's first national Marine Park to be founded on the island. The Marine Park not only focuses on the protection of the Mediterranean Seal, but is also concerned with the research, rescue and care of the seal and other mammals.
The island's main port is called Patitiri and is located on the south east coast. From the port, ferry and hydrofoil services depart to Volos, Agios Konstantinos and Thessaloniki on the mainland. Services also depart to the islands of Skiathos, Skopelos and Skyros.
Glossa is a village and a community in the north western part of the island of Skopelos in the Northern Sporades.
The architecture in Glossa consists of two-storey whitewashed houses with wooden balconies and tiled roofs.
Ruins of Roman baths can be found near the port as well as 4th century BC remains of the citadel of ancient Selinous, and ruins of a 5th century temple of Athena.
