Skiathos literary Men
Alexandros Papadiamandis "The poet of prose" according Kostis Palamas, is aggregated among the most distinguished Greek writers of modern Greece.
He was born in March 4, 1851, in Skiathos, and died there, too. His deep love for his homeland, God and humans is most obvious in his work in general. Hundreds of articles and studies have been written for his work.
Skiathos history is deeply rooted within the centuries and its origins go back in the prehistoric era. The beauty of the environment, the safe and wide port which is secured by four small islands, its fertile land, and its marine wealth made it a pole of attraction for the races that were emigrating during the prehistoric era.
