The name “Skiti” refers to the place where the monks lived alone, away from public view. The word itself, means “hermitage” in Greek.
Skiti is a lovely village of incomparable beauty, drowned in vegetation. It belongs to the Municipality of Agia, part of the prefecture of Larissa, in Thessaly, Greece. The village was built on a slope of Mount Mavrovouni, approximately 340 meters above sea level.
The endless and beautiful coastline of Larissa (Agiokampos – Sotiritsa – Velika), is just 7km from the village.
