The town of Agios Konstantinos is located in Phthiotida in Greece. Following reforms in 2011 the town became part of the municipality of Molos-Agios Konstantinos and it is now ranked as a municipal unit. The town's port has ferry connection to the Northern Sporades islands of Skiathos, Skopelos and Alonnisos.
The mainly mountainous island is covered by cypress, plane, oak and pine trees. Visitors to the island will often see goats grazing beneath the island's trees. The forest of Radi, part of the Natura 2000 scheme, is considered to be the oldest in the Balkans. Low types of oak trees are its most numerous “residents”.
The town lies around 170 km to the north west of the Greek capital of Athens and is also a small coastal resort. Over the years the town has developed a tourist industry which has been helped by its harbour. Visitors to the town often enjoy taking a stroll along the beach or through the town, taking in its ancient architecture.
Located on the Greek island of Skopelos, one of the Northern Sporades group of islands, is the town of Glossa which is the island's second largest town. It is around 25 km to the north of the island's capital called Hora. Glossa is characterised by its traditional charm and the ruins of ancient towers and buildings that have been discovered around the area. Papadiamantis called Glossa "the tall village", perhaps because it is located in the mountains and is around 300 meters above sea level and commands lovely views and has managed to remain largely unspoilt. The town has many narrow streets where it is common to still see women dressed in traditional outfits called "foustanes".
The town's narrow streets, typical Macedonian houses, with two floors, wooden balconies and tiled roofs, is regarded by many to be one of the most beautiful villages in the Sporades group of islands.
Skopelos is connected by ferry to Volos, Agios Konstantinos, Skiathos, Alonnisos and Thessaloniki during the summer.
