Journey through history

The area's archaeological site is rich in very important Roman pebbledash (floor mosaic), dating back to the 3rd century BC. One of them depicts two men sacrificing a bull and another, the Envy being torn up by wild beasts. In Aghios Georgios, about 2 km away from Skala and on the way to Poros, you can visit a picturesque country church, situated at a very beautiful site. It was built with valuable pieces of an ancient temple of 7th century BC, which was devoted to the worship of Apollo. Next to it, lie the ruined foundations of the ancient temple and some sections of its columns. The races and swimming games, taking place during the feast of St.George have survived as a custom through ancient years, when the Apollo festivities were held here. Further, in the Sakkos cave and in Mounta were discovered several findings of the Stone Age.
