Pelion Portaria

Information about Portaria

Portaria village Pelion: During the Turkish occupation, Portaria was an important village, famous for its silk products such as handkerchiefs, sashes or silk thread. Portaria was so prosperous that the French trade consul Barthelemy moved there. Many important donators and benefactors for the entire Greece were born and raised in Portaria.

This village is where the tourism of Pelion began for memories if former glories survive in Portaria, such as the magnificent mansions which were once the propriety of Zoulias, Athanassakis and Kantartzis.

There is also the lovely little 19th century three-aisled basilica of Agios Nikolaos which has interesting exterior reliefs on the front. Like the entire region of Pelion, Portaria is really rich in waters and because of that is full of watercourses and waterfalls giving particular embellishing the village.

    Pure nature and romantism
    Portaria is blessed with lush green nature. All over and around the island, there is beautiful greenry, from the gardens to the forest around the village. Pelion is great for autumn time and early winter, before it gets too cold. Better have a room with a fireplace, like we did, it was a real experience. Drink hot coffee or chocolate by the fire, play table games, listen to music and let outside be snowing or raining... That is what we did in Portaria, except for trekking.
