Make a tour and get to know Makrinitsa of Pelion

The main road leads to Makrinitsa through Portaria, but in recent years has constructed also the road through Koukourava. Both roads are leading to the square and from there another uphill road leads to the Monastery of St. Gerasimos and above, up to manors and the community forest.

However, the internal circulation in the settlement was done then and even today by a basic backbone -path that crosses over the settlement from the highest district of Kakouna to the lowest, Koukourava, while a secondary system of paved roads branching out in all directions to reach the most remote village houses.

The streets, made with stones wedged in deep, are durable in time, and, in a stride distance, the protruded stones help the trekkers' and animals’ step, which are used for transportation. Feature of the settlement is the large number of fountains (over 50), which are in the way of the cobbled streets and are used as a stopping point for walkers and for the water supply of homes since there was no corresponding network.

The water from the fountains flows into grooves that run alongside the streets, so the passer who walks in the village hears the sound of water always next to him.

A further remarkable construction type of the traditional architecture of Makrinitsa are the stone bridges that one can find also in the village, in front of the church of St. John the Theologian, in Kakouna district, but also in the surrounding locations such as Karia, Lestiani, Loziniko and Alevizi.
