Located in the Northern Sporades group of islands, the Greek island of Skiathos lies in the north west Aegean Sea to the east of the Pelion Peninsular in Magnesia on the Greek mainland, and also to the west of the island of Skopelos, which can clearly be seen on a clear day. Most of the towns on the island are located in the south and south west as the terrain is less rugged than that of the northern parts of the island. The island's main town, also called Skiathos, is located in the north east of the island whose coastline is characterised by capes, inlets and peninsulars.
The Monastery of the Annunciation is a popular tourist attraction on the island and is sometimes called the Evangelistria Monastery which is dedicated to the Virgin Mary. It is located around 4 km to the north of Skiathos Town on a hillside but unfortunately some of the monastery's buildings, which were built in 1794, are now in ruins. However, the church and accommodation buildings have been restored.
Skiathos is connected by conventional ferry and high speed ferry to Thessaloniki, the other islands in the Sporades, the islands of the Cyclades and to Crete.
The town of Agios Konstantinos in Phthiotida, Phthiotis, in Greece. The Phthiotida region encompasses the northern and southern shores of the Malian Gulf which is an inlet of the Aegean Sea. The region also continues inland, along the valley of the River Spercheios and to the south it covers the upper parts of the Cephissus Valley. The region also includes several mountain ranges which includes the Othrys in the north east, the Tymfristos in the west and Vardousia in the south west, Oeta in the south and Kallidromo in the south east.
Phthiotida was a region in ancient Greece and covered an area that is now in the northern part of the current regional unit of Phthiotida and the southern part of what is now the Magnesia region. The south eastern part of present Phthiotis was covered by the ancient region Locris, and the south western part was ancient Malis and Ainis.
The town has a harbour with regular ferry connections to the islands of Skiathos, Skopelos and Alonnisos which are part of the Northern Sporades group of islands.
