On Monday’s post I started by presenting Portaria, a small village on the mountains of Pilio, close to the city of Volos. On the next day of our trip, we chose to visit the next village which is also very well known and equally picturesque, called Makrinitsa. Makrinitsa is famous for its special architecture as you see in the last picture: houses hanging from the cliffs with roofs built out of stone. Moreover, the view of Volos beneath is breathtaking, therefore earning the title of ‘Pilion’s balcony’.
We strolled around the cobbled streets and admired the view for 2-3 hours. Local old women hold shops with local products and there is a cafeteria where also a very old Greek movie was filmed. I suggest stopping there and sipping a coffee while enjoying the view and getting cool under the huge trees.
I hope you like the pictures!!
