   The monastery is only 300 meters from St. Barbara. The beloved monastery of all the locals and the benevolent nuns who still take care of the monastery. In 1721 the holy monk Filaretou rebuilt it on top of the old foundation, as the inscription at the entrance tells us.
   The church of the monastery of Prodromos is of the same type as the church of Metamorphosis (cross shaped with four pillars), the only difference is the existence of two choirs on the sides, following the style of Mt. Athos. There is a gilded altar screen of woodcarvings with rich decorations of vine leaves, birds, animals and 15 illustrations of the main orthodox celebrations.
   Also of importance are the icons of the monastery, which date back to the 16th, 17th and 18th century A.D. In the monastery's dining room is a wall painting relating to the founding of the monastery. In the conch is an illustrated prayer and on each side St. Haralampos and Filaretos the holy monk and founder.

   Skopelos which always had a leading role in the Sporades complex was given the name “ Green and Blue Island” by the International Organization of Biopolitics. It is a natural paradise where the green pine trees and forests blend in with the deep blue sea and the light blue sky.
