Pelion Portaria Pelion Greece Pilio Pelion Portaria Hotels

Portaria is a beautiful mountainous traditional village at an altitude of 650m and is 13km from Volos. It was built around the monastery of "Panagias of Portaria", which was itself built in the 13th century. The village is filled with green scenery, spring waters, cobble-stoned paths and old mansions.

Next to the village square you can see the ruins of the hotel "Thexnia", which was considered the most luxurious of hotels in all of the Balkans. However, it was destroyed during the German occupation of Greece.

Along side the road that leads to Hania is the chapel of Panagias of Portaria, which houses many painted icons, and is right next to the church of Agios Nicolaos. On the road that leads to Makrinitsa is the Byzantine monastery of Agios Ioannis Prothromos, which is full of Byzantine icons and decorations.

You can take an interesting walk to the spring fountain "Mana" (Mother) with impressive waterfalls at the place of Karavos.

At "Lagini" you can enjoy your drink or coffee while watching the beautiful view of Volos. Alexia and George (The owners of Lagini) are very friendly and they can tell you a lot of interesting stories about the area, and will also help you out if you need any information for your day trips.

From here, if you follow the path you will pass through scenery of nature and spring waters, to the village of Athamena.

During the summer in Portaria many festivals take place. In May is the "International Dance Day", and in July is the "International Dance Festival for Children". August sees the "International Dance Festival". During the last week in August the festival reaches its conclusion with the revival of a traditional wedding.

In autumn is the "Ascent of Portaria", which is organised by the car club of Volos. For more information on this call (24210) 55339.
