Central Pelion Becomes New Cultural Heritage Destination

In early June 2014, Central Pelion in Greece was announced as the new cultural destination at Geo Routes Cultural Heritage Journeys under the auspices of the Hellenic National Commission for UNESCO. Geo Routes’ 26th new destination in Greece was officially launched with the participation of a selected group of general managers from the Chief Executive Officers’ Association, who were willing to explore – experience and be part of the “secret” wonders of the area of the region of Magnesia.

Due to its ease of access, Pelion – also known as the Mountain of the Centaurs – is considered to be a favorite destination all year-round. It offers sites of natural beauty, rich gastronomy and a rich cultural heritage from myths, legends and traditions.

Geo Routes will provide three different 3-day journeys, each available in the region of Magnesia and Mt. Pelion.

The first journey has already launched and is focused on Central Pelion and more specifically introduces the villages of Makrinitsa, Ag.Georgios Nilias, Pinakates, Vyzitsa and Milies.
