Today is the last day in Skopelolos it was really really rainy and windy We went to a church where it is said that the dragon of Skopelos was slain. Eight hundred years ago a dragon came and the took all of the people's crops and killed everyone. The dragon ruled Skopelos and the surrounding islands for four hundred years! There are a couple of different versions of this story. One is that a man named Agios Riginos heard about the dragon he pretended to be a sailor and took a boat to Skopelos and fought the dragon. Another version says the Riginos was sent by the church to be the religious leader of the survivors. During the battle the dragon either fell off the cliff and smashed onto a rock or was swallowed by the earth never to be seen again. THE SKOPOLITIANS ARE SAVED!!!! Riginos became the patron saint of the island and people name a lot of things after him such as hotels, restaurants and their children.
