Where we sat in the evenings to admire the view was a memorial to someone, there being a plaque and also a drinking fountain.
One evening we arrived to find someone had parked their motorbike inside! Typical Greek custom of making use of spaces!!
A lot of older buildings in Pilion have slate or stone roofs. Slate seems to be big business and there were many places on the roadsides where you would see it for sale.
Some newer houses roofs were finished in red tile but others were carrying on the tradition of slate roofs.
This picture shows the newer red tiles being laid on top of the old stone roof. Not sure if the roof was safe!
This was the pretty little church at Katigiorgis. I think there was seating for about ten.
Outside there was even a children's play area.
We had a picnic lunch on the outside benches, in the shade of the trees.
This is the place to by your sweets, cigarettes, ices, postcards, stamps, drinks, anything you can think of they will probably have. Come prepared with small change or meet with the wrath of the salesperson!!!
Most villages have one.
This one at Horton could have done with a bit more chocking up!!
If you like ouzo, be prepared to be disappointed in Pilion. Only Tsipouro is served there, usually with a meze involving anchovies.
Personally I find Tsipouro a bit oily textured and not the same flavour as ouzo. I guess I will just have to adapt!!
This was taken in Kotes. I have never seen a woman attending the nets before. Perhaps I am wrong, but usually it is the men. They very kindly let me take their picture.
Platanias is the major fishing port in south Pilion. There were some enormous caiques there when we arrived by boat and there was lots of unloading of the catches. A busy little spot.
We loved this model of the chef at Trata O Larisaios in Platanias. I wonder how many photos he had had taken of him??
