gatzea view

The village Ano Gatzea (Upper) is 16km from Volos and is at an altitude of 100m. This village is surrounded by olive groves. A little further from the village are the three bridges, which were built by the Italian engineer "Evaristo de Kirico" in 1903.

On these bridges you will see the small train, which is famous through all of Pelion, known as "Moutzouris-Smudgy". If you can, you must take the journey on the train, which travels from Ano Gatzea to the village of Milies.

Kato Gatzea (Lower) is the port serving inland village. Visitors from all over and of all ages are attracted to here. You will find tavernas and restaurants by the sea where you can enjoy your meal whilst watching the beautiful sunsets.

It is the perfect place for quiet and peaceful vacations. During the summer, many festivities take place, such as sailing races, and the large festival of Timiou Stavrou (The Holy Cross), which takes place on September 13th to 14th.
