The village of Makrinitsa is a pure jewel hanging on the edge of the amazingly lush and green mountain. Makrinitsa is known as the “Balcony of Pelion”, due to its unique view over Volos and the Pagasetic Gulf that can be seen from every point.

Makrinitsa is also known as the “noble village”, as it was mostly inhabited by wealthy people. Its admirable mansions dated from the 18th and 19th century indicate the village’s history and most of these are now being renovated and used as hostels that offer an “ambient” stay to their visitors.
