One of the largest and most historical villages of east Pelion, Zagora, is located 44km from Volos, and it is found on a green mountain side. Its authentic and traditional style has not been spoiled by tourism.
During the Ottoman Occupation, Zagora was a "shelter" for many Greeks that came here from other places in Greece where life had become especially hard and unbearable.
There are four districts (same as Tsagarada), Agia Paraskevi (also known as Perahora), Agia Kyriaki, Agios Georgios and Sotiras, all of them offering a view of the Aegean sea.
The well- maintained mansions of local architecture are scattered in the lush vegetation and quite a few of them are guesthouses.
