Visit the largest capital village of Pelion
Zagora, the largest of the capital villages of Pelion, was a pioneer in the cultivation of letters and the development of crafts, shipping and trade.
The old Zagorians were not only industrious and progressive people but also philanthropic and philanthropic. Many became benefactors and benefactors of their native land, allocating large sums for public works and for studious youth. Moreover, their faith in God and their reverence for God is reflected in the derelict parish churches of the town and in the numerous chapels – most of them old micro-monasteries – that are scattered in the area, from the sea to the hilltops above Zagora.
Most of the churches were built three centuries ago, and even earlier. During their many years of presence, due to the effects of the elements of nature and other causes, some chapels have been destroyed, but they have been poorly repaired and almost all of them have lost more or less their original decoration.
