Skyros Sights & Monuments - The Ancient Palamari in Skyros, Greece is a must-visit destination for history enthusiasts. Located on the north side of Skyros, the bay of Palamari houses a fortified hamlet dating back to the Early and Middle Cooper Period (2500–1800 BC). This hamlet once had a port that connected with the Cyclades islands, mainland Greece's east side, and the North East Aegean Sea.

Recent research led to the discovery of the city's organized plan, impressive buildings, and roads. In some rooms, visitors can see stone walls, hearths, ovens, and even formatted floors. Artifacts such as various vessels, stone tools, appliances, tools made from bone, and a selection of metallic appliances were also found. The most important finding was the wall with the large U-shaped bastions rising up in the uneven spaces.

From a defensive point of view, this hamlet was very well reinforced with its front wall, trench, and stone barrier, which had Syrian and Palestinian origins and appeared in areas of the Aegean around 2300 BC.

Visit Ancient Palamari to appreciate the ancient insight into the historic past of the north of Skyros and its connection with different parts of Greece and the Greek Islands. While there, don't forget to relax and swim on the lovely Palamari beach.
