Zagora   

Zagora is a scenic village built amphitheatrically in a wooded slope of eastern Mount Pelion, overlooking the Aegean Sea. The name is probably of a Slavic origin and means 'behind the mountains'. Although being a mountainous village, residents during the 17th and 18th century have developed remarkable fleet using Horefto as a seaport.

The region produces several agricultural products but most famous are the apples and firikia. The last few years, residents have taken advantage of both the  stricking natural environment and of the architectural style of the settlement to promote Zagora to one of the most popular tourist destinations of Pelion. Today, the village provides excellent tourist organization and is ideal for a four season-holiday.

While visiting Zagora do not miss visiting the churches of Agia Kyriaki and Agios Georgios, rebuilt in the 18th century, the impressive fountains of Krali and Despoti, the library and the museum Ellinomouseio (School of Riga).
