  2. Tsagkarada’s Squares:
    • Saint Paraskevi square and the old 1000+ year-old Plane tree:
      The Plane Tree of Tsagkarada is one of the oldest trees in Greece, and maybe even Europe. Its age, according
      to foresters, amounts to 1000+ years and exists at the central square of Tsagkarada, Saint Paraskevi square. On
      that square, you will meet a special café/restaurant named “the Lost Unicorn”.
    • Saint Brigades Square:
      4km away from Saint Paraskevi square, you will meet the 2 nd largest square, that of Saint Brigades. The temple
      there is dated back in 1746 and is among the oldest temples of Pelion. In the area you can find café, fast food,
      restaurants, taverns, butchery, market, souvenir shops etc.
    • Saint Stefanos Square:
      A small square with a very little traditional characteristic chapel. There you can find whatever special and
      weird stuff you may need in the shop “Kipouremata” and a pizzeria.

      The southest square of the village with the Holy Temple being active only during the summer.
  3. Old arched bridge:
    The stone-built one-arched bridge of Tsagarada is at the beginning of the village and from there begins the
    gorge of Mylopotamos. It is the oldest and most well-known bridge of Pelion, with a characteristic arched arch.
    Access to this is very easy. From the main road you will find a sign that says “old bridge”. A downhill path
    between the chestnuts leads you in a few minutes to an amazing place in the woods with the plane trees.


    Here, you will find benches to relax and enjoy the tranquility of the rusting of the leaves and the running water
    from the canyon.

  4. Beaches:
    In addition to the dense vegetation that extends from the beginning of the sea to the top of the mountain,
    hospitality and traditional food, Tsagarada is also famous for its wonderful beaches to visit. The beaches of
    Tsagarada are the most picturesque of those in Eastern Pelion.


    • Mylopotamos: The blue oasis of Pelion. The best known and most recognized, both within Greece and
      abroad! A picturesque beach, with crystal clear waters drowned in the green. In its length it has sand,
      pebbles and smaller stones and is a real oasis for the lucky ones who will enjoy their dives there. Its
      waters are compared, not unfairly, with mirrors and the beach is informally divided into two smaller
      beaches with a natural stone arch that provides access from one section to another. Guests think they are
      really in an exotic place and is the jewel of Pelion. Its beauty is so famous that it has won blue flags and
      has been photographed by many international magazines and is undoubtedly one of the most famous
      beaches of Greece. We recommend dining in “Aggelika fish taverna”.
    • Fakistra:  What characterizes it is the crystal clear aquamarine waters, fine sand and pebbles. It is a
      small treasure that impresses anyone who is fortunate enough to meet it. The turquoise waters of the
      sandy beach are located in a bay with imposing and steep cliffs that create a unique setting. It may be
      quite isolated and disorganized but that’s what makes it stand out.
    • Damouchari: Accessible from a magical path from the village of Tsagarada, the wild beauty of
      Damouchari seduces visitors with its crystal clear waters and white pebbles. It is the only natural harbor
      on the south side of Pelion. It is a small picturesque and quiet settlement consisting of two small bays that
      are joined by a peninsula on which there are ruins of a castle. The North Bay is still a harbor with taverns
      and houses. The South has a beautiful beach full of white pebbles and crystal clear waters, which in
      combination with the neighboring gorge give Damouhari a wild beauty. Anyone who has seen the
      successful musical “Mamma Mia!”, Probably should have wondered where this wonderful place is. We
      suggest eating in the “Taverna to Karagatsi”.
    • Horefto: The longest beach of Pelion. The beach is a great choice for families with young children. It
      also has several beach bars, taverns, souvenirs, supermarkets, etc.
    • Agios Ioannis: Agios Ioannis is one of the most beautiful beaches in the area, with golden sand, white
      pebbles and crystal clear waters. Close to the homonymous village, Agios Ioannis beach is fully organized,
      where you can enjoy water sports along with your dives.
    • Papa Nero: Within walking distance of Agios Ioannis, the beautiful Papa Nero Beach creates a unique
      setting of golden sand, crystal clear Aegean waters and a lush landscape that gives it an exotic aura. The
      beach is organized with umbrellas and sun loungers, while after your swim, the taverns along the beach
      are ideal for good seafood snacks.
    • Agioi Saranda: A beach of heavenly beauty to the east of Pelion, Agioi Saranta are ideal for diving in
      magnificent turquoise waters and for relaxation in the golden sand and fine white pebbles. At the beach,
      you will meet “Kalogeros”, a big rock from which the most adventurous can dive.

  7. Milies Village and the famous Train:The ascent from the beautiful slopes of Pelion to Milies starts! One of the narrowest railway lines in the world
    (60 centimeters) hosts the 4 wagons of “Moutzouris”, as it was once called the Pelion train, to declare the
    steam and smoke it left behind. From Ano Lechonia to Milies, the route is mountainous, crossing the verdant
    slopes, with the dense vegetation of plane trees. The only stop of the train is for just 15 minutes, in Ano
    Gatzea, to continue “blowing out” and rocking its wagons for a journey of a total length of 15 kilometers and a
    time of about 90 minutes (tel. +30 24210 39723, e-mail: grafeio.volou@trainose.gr).
