Welcome to Glossa & Loutraki
Glossa, Skopelos’ second settlement, is a whitewashed cluster of shops and eateries. A 2km road winds down from the small square to the laid-back port of Loutraki ('Glossa' in ferry timetables). A shorter kalderimi (cobblestoned path) connects both villages as well. Fans of the 2008 movie Mamma Mia! can start their pilgrimage in Glossa to reach the film’s little church, Agios Ioannis Kastri (St John of the Castle).
Loutraki means ‘small bath’ and you can see the remains of ancient Roman baths at the archaeological kiosk on the port.
