There are around 120 churches and chapels almost at every corner! Stop for a coffee or a desert (avgato, hamalia, rozedes) and the unique skopelitian cheese-pie.
Then continue to visit the Local Folklore Museum a building furnished in the local style with aim is to recreate a typical Skopelitan household.
