Early Cycladic Settlement of Skarkos

The archaeological site of Skarkos is located in an area of the lower plain and it hosts one of the most important Early Cycladic settlements. The conservation project at Skarkos was awarded with the EU prize for cultural heritage, as it has not altered the settlement’s aspect.

Aside from the unique architecture dating back to the Copper Age, you may also admire the excavations’ findings with a visit to the Archaeological Museum of Ios.
