Greece in photos: Pelion

View from above

Mylopotamos beach. There are many scenic beaches on Pelion but this one is the most photographed.

Taverna tables at the plateia

The traditional village of Vizitsa. Each of the old mountainous villages of Pelion has a so called "plateia" - a small square shaded by high trees, with tables of one or two tavernas.

Tzasteni - the emblematic spot of Pelion. There is hardly any article about the peninsula without such a photo.

The old harbor

Damouchari and its old harbor. Some scenes of the Mamma Mia! movie were shot here and the seafront tavernas overlook it.

House with view

Views from Makrinitsa. The amphitheatrically built village is called "the balcony of Mount Pelion".

Green stone at the beach

Green stones at Potistika beach. This sandy beach is characterized by reddish and greenish rocks around the shore and in the sea.

The church of Panagia Megalomata

The small church of Panagia Megalomata carved in a rock. One of the least known sights of the peninsula, located right above a sea cave with the same name and next to the ruins of a hidden school.

The little fishing harbor

Kottes - a fishing harbor in the middle of nowhere. Worth visiting not only for the remote location but also for the fresh fish and lobsters served at the few tavernas.

Agios Dimitrios church

The village of Pinakates. All hotels follow the traditional architectural style for the region.

View from the road

Papa Nero beach - this is not aerial photo. The view is from the road, on the way down to Damouchari

Table for two

Evening at the square of Mouresi village. The sea looks delusively close due to the high altitude although it is 4 km away. The view however is quite romantic, especially at night.
