The island is the most remote of the Northern Sporades island group and host to the National Marine Park of Northern Sporades, a refuge for rare seabirds, dolphins and the Mediterranean monk seal (monachus monachus).

Alónissos was one of the first islands of the Aegean to be inhabited as indicated by Neolithic settlement remnants found at the Cape of Kokkinókastro ( Red Castle). On Yioúra island, human presence was first detected in the 9th century BC, according to findings at Cyclop’s cave.

Situated at the crossroads of major sea routes, it was from here that Argo, the ship on which Jason and the Argonauts sailed to Kolhida to retrieve the Golden Fleece and the ships of Achaeans sailed to Troy.

Upon reaching the island you will encounter Patitíri, the picturesque harbor and capital of the island with the beautiful stone paved waterfront that took its name from the wine presses used by the locals, who were mainly occupied with wine making. Hóra (or Old Village) is the old capital of the island.

A medieval castle offering sweeping views to the sea, stone houses with picture-perfect courtyards, narrow paved streets, threshing floors and a number of churches encapsulates the essence of a typical Greek island settlement. A path from Hóra leads to the church of Áyioi Anárgyroi, where you can enjoy a lovely walk in the dense pine forest.

At Miliá, in a green idyllic location, you will find the International Academy of Homeopathy, which still keeps alive the deep-rooted tradition of folk medicine cherished thanks to the miraculous herbs growing on the island. Sea lovers will also find beautiful and serene beaches with crystal-clear waters (Meyálos Mourtiás, Stení Vála, Miliá, Chrisí Miliá, Marpoúnta).
