Agios Dimitrios

  This is the fifth municipal region one comes across when travelling from Volos. A picturesque village, the balcony of Pelion one could say, having a marvelous view of the Aegean Sea. The cobbled roads, the footpaths and the fountains made of stone, offer a fine opportunity for long walks inside the village as well as the forest. The picturesque churches of Agios Georgios, Agios Dimitrios, Agios Ioannis Theologos, Metamorfosi tou Sotiros and Panagia are decorated with marvelous murals and woodcut iconostasis worth seeing. The byzantine church of Metamorfosi tou Sotiros is the only church in Pelion having five domes.

At the paved square, one can see the famous Basilica of Agia Marina, built in the 17th c., famous for its golden-platted iconostasis, made of hand curved linden, worked by three generations of artisans from Epirus. The famous artist from Epirus, Ioannis Pagonis, painted its hagiographies. The byzantine icons of the church were donated by monks from Mount Athos.
