The biggest village in Eastern Pelion, renowned for its long history, rich cultural tradition and excellent apple production.

Zagora is built amphitheatrically on a mountainside, it is covered with lush vegetation and it is divided into four main districts, Agia Paraskevi or Perahora, Agia Kiriaki, Agios Georgios and Sotira. 

The main attractions of Zagora are its picturesque squares and churches, the school of Rigas Ferreos, the Public Library of Zagora, but we also recommend you to walk along the cobbled paths of the village to discover the wonderful old mansions and traditional sculpted fountains which are the hidden beauties of Zagora. During the summer various cultural and sports activities are organised here, while you may also be lucky enough to take part in one of the local festivals of the village.
Zagora was an important commercial centre in the past and it had its own fleet, the renowned "Zagorian ships", which set off from Chorefto and crossed the Mediterranean Sea, carrying the products of the region to major European ports. During the Turkish occupation notable Greeks such as Rigas Ferreos and Anthimos Gazis lived in Zagora.
The rich commercial activity of Zagora continues today with the cultivation of the famous "Zagorin apples" by the Agricultural Cooperative of Zagora. In the square of Agios Georgios you will also find the shop of the Women's Agrotourism Cooperative of Zagora which sells delicious homemade products such as spoon sweets, jams and liqueurs flavored with fruit.
