MAKRYNITSA

Central Pelion

Hanging at an altitude of 500 metres, Makrinitza (as it is known to its oldest residents) awaits visitors with its wonderful cobbled streets and alleys, its traditional stone rooftops and its fifty-six fountains. It is not accidental that it is renowned as the “Balcony of Pelion”.

Here with the entire town of Volos and much of the Pagasitikos Gulf spreading before you, all you need to do is choose which mansion, hostel or guest house to check in to. Then you can just sit back and enjoy the view, which extends as far as the eye can see.

Made of wood and stone, the mansions, tower houses and cottages, built by skilled craftsmen and masons, are in complete harmony with the natural environment.

As you wander through the village, one way or another you will arrive at Plateia Eirinis (‘Peace Square’), with its huge plane tree that provides plenty of shade and its small tavernas and cafés where you can stop and rest for a moment until you decide whether you would continue your journey, or you would simply stay there and enjoy the atmosphere.

Beautiful dilemmas. But once you realise that the Kakuna neighbourhood up the hill stands at 850 metres, you would certainly jump to your feet and go even further.
