Skotina (Greek: Σκοτίνα) is a town with 957 inhabitants (2001), of the former municipality of East Olympos, which is part of the municipality of Dio-Olympos, in the Pieria regional unit, Central Macedonia, Greece. The name is taken due to handmade costumes (woolen fabrics, handmade costumes), which were made in the region that made the cloaks and the sails for sailing ships of the era.
The village is built on the southeastern edge of the mount Olympus, 32 km from the city of Katerini, where the fog, shadow and the sun reaches the endless coastline of Thermaikos Gulf. There we find the genuine simplicity and grandeur of the legendary of the Olympian twelve.
