East Pelion

The area of eastern Pelion is a special diverse field, consisting of traditional villages and settlements with a deep historical and cultural tradition dominated by the stone structure and extending from the position of Horeytra near Neohori in the south, to Veneto in the north.

Historical churches, stone bridges, impressive mansions, public buildings characterized works of art such as the Nanopoulio school, paved squares with fountain and centuries-old plane trees covering them, all compose the special architectural character of the area and carry the visitor to the depths of time.

Deep ravines covered by plane trees carve the wooded areas of beech and chestnut that spread like carpet on its slopes, while fruit trees, olives, walnuts, oaks, liopourna, melega and a whole lot of other species lay a green carpet up to the sea.

Steep gorges end up on a blue coastline with beautiful beaches but also impressive rock formations and sea caves, smiling from the Aegean Sea.

And around this incomparable natural beauty place, stands braided the special mythological and historical fabric, which from the Centaurs, Jason and the Argonauts passes in the historical and Byzantine years, to reach today through the Turkish occupation and the “Piliorites in Egypt” (early 20th century).

On the mountain chosen by the Olympian gods for their summer residence, everyone can find the personal enjoyment and serenity that he seeks but also intense moments through festivals, concerts, cultural events, traditional events and a large number of activities related to nature such as hiking, canyon descent, sea kayaking, horseback riding, climbing, mountain biking etc.
