TRAVEL ROUTE 1
Affisos - Trikeri (Agia Kiriaki)
is a peaceful fishing village situated at the Pagasitic Gulf.
It is amphitheatrically built, really picturesque and is surrounded
by three attractive beaches: Kallifteri, Lagoudi and Abovos. Full
of flowers, calm waters and a lot of tourism in the summer are
typical for this village. The village radiates a cozy and relaxed
atmosphere by its small streets and beautiful shady square that
is bisected by a small stream, so that two bridges give this typical
square a romantic aspect.
More south of Afissos, immediately by the sea, lies the picturesque
village named Lefokastro. It is hidden between the hills with
beautiful olive trees and calm sandy beaches who invite the visitors
to spend relaxed summer holidays.
To go more south, you have to go first into the inland before
the coast appears again. Here the nature is described as a Toscana
Argalasti is one of the biggest villages of South Pelion. From
here it is very close to the magnificent sandy beaches Potistika,
Melani and Paltsi.
The following two port-villages are Horto and Milina. In Horto,
the smallest one, nothing has changed in thirty years. At the
end of August, the open air theatre at Horto is the setting for
cultural events which are famous all over Greece. During the summer
Milina is full of life, although it kept a lot of its old atmosphere.
It has, without exaggeration, one of the most beautiful sunsets
On the way to Trikeri an unexpected miracle called Tzasteni appears
after the bend. The scenery emerges between two patches of sea
and is reflected in the water.
The last village at the south side is Trikeri. The many white
houses are characterizing this mountain village. The port of Trikeri
lies a bit further on and is called Agia Kyriaki. Here it seems
the time stood still. The taverns here are situated at the sea
and are offering fresh fish everyday.
