INFORMATION ABOUT ALONISSOS
The small yet beautiful island of Alonissos is known for its picturesque greenery and wonderful beaches.
Although this island is close to busy Skiathos, it remains a more peaceful and authentic destination.
The old capital is Chora, a charming village located on top of a hill. Chora has been built on the site of a Medieval Castle that protected the island from external attacks.
The paved paths of Chora are lined by traditional houses, cafeterias and some gift shops. After an earthquake that hit Alonissos in 1965, many houses in the village were damaged.
The inhabitants abandoned it and moved a bit closer to the sea, where they built their new capital, Patitiri.
The history of the island dates back to the prehistoric times, as shown by ancient remains.
Alonissos is also mentioned in mythology as the myth says that the father of Achilles, the legendary hero of Troy, spent the last days of his life on that island.
The Minoan and the Mycenaeans built many towns there. The island developed its economical power due to trade, agriculture and wine making.
In the Roman times, it was used as an exile land for political enemies and expelled citizens. All along its history, it was attacked by pirates.
In the 13th century, it was conquered by the Venetians and then by the Turks. In 1829, after the end of the Greek Revolution, it was integrated to the Greek State.
Today the island owes a lot of its income in tourism. Apart from the clean coasts, the sea water around the island is also of high quality.
In fact, the sea region to the north of Alonissos has been declared a National Marine Park as it is rich in marine life.
Moreover, the endangered species Monachus-Monachus, the rare Mediterranean Monk Seal, lives there.
