One of the most famous villages in Pelion and the one closer to Volos, about 15km away. Portaria is a popular destination due to the wide variety of tourist facilities and the ample hospitality offered by the locals.
Around the main square with the huge plane trees you will find beautiful guesthouses, family-run tavernas serving traditional Greek cuisine dishes and shops where you can buy local products (sweets, marmalade, liqueurs, etc.).
One of the most remarkable characteristics of Portaria is that it is surrounded by lush green vegetation and superb mansions built in the local architecture style, most of which are restored and are nowadays used as guesthouses.
During your stay at this village it is worth visiting the Historical and Folklore Museum (tel. +30 24280 99505) found in Zoulia Mansion and the Agioi Anargyroi Church which was built in the period from 1791 to 1891.
The Agriolefkes ski resort is 10km away.
