PORTARIA

Central Pelion

One of the most well-known villages of Pelion, which flourished in the past thanks to its silk industry and commerce, and one of the oldest tourist resorts dating back to 1908 when it used to offer what were considered to be luxury hotels and accommodation at the time. This former glory is still evident to todays visitors from the very entrance of the village to the last stone mansion, in the well-kept courtyards of the houses with their freshly-painted walls, in every little stone fountain with spring water along the streets.

Five parking lots, five different starting points from which to explore the beautiful countryside, the cobbled streets, the plane trees, the streams and brooks... all the wonders of nature along any route you might choose.

It all starts at the Melina Mercouri Square, the central square with its plane trees and the fountain with spring water coming directly from the mountain, with its traditional coffee houses and tavernas offering local Pelion cuisine and much more. All these little things you would like to take home with you: small jars with whole fruit preserves, traditional handicraft items, souvenirs, local delicacies with unique taste and flavour, all made by the women of the cooperative, are just ‘two steps away’ as the locals say, right there at the Agrotourist Kiosk where your only concern would be what to choose first...

Thats how the journey of exploration begins in Pelion...
