Pelion Chorto Village

Chorto village Pelion: Chorto (or Horto) is a small seaside village on the southern side of Pelion Peninsula. At a distance of 46 km from Volos, Chorto is located in the inner side of Pelion, on the coasts of the Pagasetic Gulf, in the midway between Argalasti and Milina.

Archaeological excavations have shown that Chorto has been inhabited since the times of Homer. In fact, the bay of Chorto formed a busy port for the ancient local tribes. In the Byzantine times, the village was called Chortokastro, while its present name was probably given in the Venetian times from the world chortus, which means paled garden.

From the 19th century till the 1950s, Chorto was an important trade centre for the agricultural products that were produced in the region. From the 1970s, tourism has developed and today it is a lovely family place for summer holidays.
