Eastern Pelion

 

According to Greek mythology Pelion was the mountain of the Centaurs and also the summer resort of the 12 Olympian Gods. It is one of the most beautiful places in Greece, with wonderful forests and green slopes. This mountain is also associated with myths about Hercules, Achilles and Jason, as well as with the myth of Paris, who gave the ‘Apple of Discord’ to the most beautiful goddess and this brought about the Trojan War.

Pelion today is a perfect tourist destination for all seasons and tastes, as it combines mountain and sea beauties in a unique way. Its tourist infrastructure is constantly growing whereas there ’s marvelous nature and picturesque villages.

Eastern Pelion is the part of Pelion facing the Aegean Sea, a place where nature is ‘wild’, rough and the vegetation is so lush that it slopes down to the sea.
