Vizitsa Village in Pelion
Vizitsa is a traditional mountainous village, which is perfect for calm and quite vacations. At an altitude of 320m, it is 46km from Volos. The Greek Tourist Organisation (E.O.T) has helped tourism in this area by maintaining the traditional style of the old houses and mansions.
In the big paved square you can enjoy your coffee sitting underneath the centuries old plain trees.
Many of the old mansions operate as pensions and guesthouses these days.Just follow the cobble-stoned paths and let yourself drift into the old days with beautiful scenery all around you. You can visit the monastery of Agios Ioannis Prothromos, which was built in 1789, or the church of Zoothohou Pigis (Life Giving Stream), which was built in 1725.
In this village three large festivals take place every year, with wine and traditional Greek dance and music. On July 1st is the day of Agion Anairgiron, on August 15th is the day of Panagia (Virgin Mary), and on August 29th is the day of Agios Ioannos Prothromos.
