MILIES - PELION ( PILIO ) - GREECE

Pelion Milies Pelion Greece Pilio Pelion Milies Hotels

This is a traditional mountainous village at an altitude of 400m and 28km from Volos. The combination of natural beauty and tourist development result in Milies being a perfect place for vacations.

There is also the obvious historical past of the village, with traditional Pelion architecture. You will walk along the cobble-stoned paths and see the old houses, mansions and spring water fountains.

Milies is the hometown of Antimos Gorzis and Gregory Koustanta, who are two very important men in Greek history. They founded the school "Yihis Akos" in 1814.

You can visit the church of Panmegiston Taxiarhon, built in 1741, in the village square. It was from here that the revolution against the Turks started in May 1821, under the leadership of Anthimos Gazis.

You must visit the rail station. It is here that the steam train "Moutzouris-Smudgy" reaches its destination. The Italian engineer Jiorgio de Kirico developed this project in 1895, and created one of the most beautiful and difficult rail lines, with the help of local workmen.

The original length of the rails was 29km from Volos. Today however, only 16km is still in use, and runs from Lehonia to Milies. From the train you will find a truly magical view, where you will see two, three and four arched bridges, which are surrounded by a stunning green background.

During the summer, many festivals take place, such as "Milies Night" in the middle of August and the "Pear Night" at the end of August. A large festival also takes place on the name day of Agia Paraskevi on July 25th to 27th, with traditional music and dance.

If you are looking for something lively you can visit the village Kala Nera, where you will find restaurants, fish tavernas and bars. For swimming you can drive 8km and you will find the beautiful sandy beach of Koropi (Boufa). It is the biggest beach on the Pagasitic gulf with crystal clear waters.

You will be able to find a great selection of hotels and accommodation in the Pelion town of Milies. For the best hotel deals and lots of special offers for hotels in Milies where you can search through many hotels, simply click here !
