Pelion was chosen to be inhabited by the Centaurs, these mythical beings with half human body and half horse body and in the same mountain, rich in vegetation and running water, the gods of Olympus had their summer residence and not by chance. Small picturesque villages perched on the slopes of the mountain, beaches spread at its feet, traditional architecture, Byzantine churches, gun powder mills, compose the scene that becomes even more interesting when combined with a dive in a shipwreck of Byzantine times.
Known for its natural beauty, Alonissos, has dense forests with pine and olive trees, emerald waters and a great National Marine Park, Europe’s biggest of its kind, where the Monachus-Monachus seal population is protected. In 2020, the first underwater museum in Greece started operating in Alonissos.
Birthplace of the mythical centaurs, Pelion is a magical mountain: evergreen and oak forests, over 1000 species of healing herbs, springs, traditional villages with characteristic architecture and at sea level, coasts with crystal clear blue waters.
The coastal port city of Volos is located at the foot of Mount Pelion overlooking the Pagasetic Gulf. It is built near the site of ancient Iolcos and the starting point of the famous Argonaut expedition led by Jason.
