Located on the Greek island of Skopelos, in the Northern Sporades group of islands, the village of Glossa is in the north west of the island, around 11 km to the north west of Skopelos Town and 23 km from Hora. Often regarded as one of the most picturesque villages in the region, the village is characterised by narrow streets and paths and its traditional houses, with two floors, hanging wooden balconies and tiled roofs. The village, set in the mountains at around 300 m above sea level, has amazing views and has managed to avoid being affected by the modern way of life. It is still common to find the women folk of the village wearing traditional outfits called "foustanes".
