The Municipality of Zagora Mouresi is hidden in the deep foliages. The capital is Zagora, 55 km away from Volos. The municipality of Zagora Mouresi includes the municipal districts of Pouri, Zagora, Makrirahi, Anilio, Agios Dimitrios, Kissos, Mouresi, Tsagarada and Xourihti.
In these villages you must add the sea-haven spots of Horefro, Agioi Saranta, Agios Ioannis, Papa Nero, Damouhari and Mylopotamos as well as the beaches of Ovrios, Elitsa, Parisena, Analipsi, Banikas, Plaka, Fakistra and Limnionas. All those villages being in complete harmony with the natural environment give the impression that they sprung up from the fertile soil of the mountain.
It seems as if they are hanging to the wild east side of the Pelion, generously offering to the visitor luminosity, sea, scents, picturesque landscapes, serenity and relaxation. Settlements blend absolutely harmoniously with the landscape. A symphony of the nature's orchestra in Crescendo. The respiration of Pelion's soil, the autumnal haze, the fall of the leaves, the endless hibernal white landscape, the spring's renaissance, the summer's nonchalance.
Throughout the year the region is hospitable and attractive to the visitor. During a long part of the year swimmers enjoy the crystal clear waters of the sandy or pebbly beaches, or get amazed to watch from the Pelion's slopes the sun spring. It's no wonder why the Olympian Gods have chosen Pelion as their summer resort.
Nature compensates the man. The Aegean's coastlines, at places wild and fascinating, at others sandy and serene, are in absolute harmony with the evergreen slopes. The visitor listens to the silent reverberation of the past and presumes the feeling of the present.
Don't miss the local spirit (Tsipouro) along with Kritama (coastal weed rich in iodine), Tsitsiravla (wild sprouts), and wild edible mushrooms (Macrolepiota procera, Boletus edulis - king bolete), all with the delicious olive oil of Pelion.
The beach of Agioi Saranta in Pelion is found south of Chorefton has spotless crystal waters and a beautiful golden sandy beach, next to dense trees and rocks. The famous tall rock Kalogero is located there where the adventurous dive into the waters of Aegean.
