Mountain

Rarely you can find such a travel destination that can combine so many different images and experiences as Mount Pelion.

I used to live in the town of Volos next to the mountain as a kid and last summer I returned as a tourist.

Here are a few pictures, more to follow in the tips section soon...

Sea

Several beaches around the mountain for every possible taste.

Mythology

According to Greek mythology in Mount Pelion lived the centaurs. They were wise creatures with human head, torso and arms and horse body.
Since myths suppose to be symbolisms of our anchestors' fears and desires, it seems that either the prehistoric Greek girls were rather unsatisfied or the prehistoric Greek boys were not so well equipped :p
Well they may just had great imagination after all.
