|THE VILLAGES AND THE BEACHES OF TRIKERI AND AGIA KYRIAKI IN PELION OR PILION IN GREECE|
Trikeri and Agia Kyriaki are two villages in the far south of the Pelion peninsula. The distance to the capital city of Volos is 81 kilometers. For some time now this part of the Pelion peninsula can also be reached by car via a 32-kilometer road. Previously the road stopped at the village of Milina. The harbor of Trikeri is called Agia Kyriaki and it is located in the extreme south of the Pelion peninsula. Here about 300 people live. The village of Trikeri has about 1200 inhabitants.
Trikeri and Agia Kyriaki are a great destination for people that are looking for peace and tranquility. The harbor of Agia Kyriaki is quaint with small old white houses, colorful wooden fishing boats with busy fishermen and some fish tavernas. It has a bit of an island atmosphere and is seen as one of the most beautiful places in Pelion.
The former inhabitants of Trikeri were mainly fishermen and sponge divers. Many of the women of this village still wear traditional clothes. Trikeri has narrow cobbled streets and is slightly raised, creating beautiful views that can be admired. Interesting are the two churches in the village, the church of Agios Athanasios from 1799 and the Aghia Triada church that dates back to 1781. In the last one you can see the gold-covered wooden throne of Napoleon and a wood-crafted iconostasis dating from 1739.
|THE ISAND PALAIO TRIKERI IN PILION OR PELION IN GREECE|
On the north side of this piece of Pelion lies the island of Palaio Trikeri (= old Trikeri) inhabited by about 40 to 80 people, depending on the season (more during the summer than the winter). A very long time the island was the domain of fishermen and a Byzantine monastery. After 1947 during the Greek Civil War time Palaio Trikeri served as a concentration camp for female anti-facist political prisoners. The number of prisoners ran up to 4,700 people in September 1949 when also other political prisoners were transported to the island.
In the meanwhile peace and quiet has returned Palaio Trikeri. There are no cars on the island and the only means of transport are donkeys. There are a few streets, but no roads and most of the infrastructure consists of hiking trails. In the port of the island are two tavernas and a small shop. There is also a small not really attractive pebble beach near the port. The attraction of Palaio Trikeri is the Monastery of the Annunciation of the Virgin Mary.
In the 11th century the island Palaio Trikeri was abandoned because of the fear of pirate attacks. The inhabitants moved to the mainland and the island remained abandoned until the 18th century when a monk decided to go and live there. The Virgin Mary appeared three times to him and told him three times to dig in the ruins to find her lost icon (connoisseurs know that in this way a lot of sacred icons were dug out of Greek soil). The monk found the icon, which glowed and had a very nice smell. In three years time he built a church next to the ruins of the old one, so he could house the icon there. The construction of the monastery began in 1827. The Monastery of the Annunciation of the Virgin Mary is a fifteen minute walk from the harbor and it is quite large.
The island Trikeri is not really big, about 4.5 kilometers m2, and in about 30 minutes you can go from one side to the other side on foot. There are about a total of 7 small pebble and mixed sand / pebble beaches to be found. Although the island is served by small fast ferries, generally it still remains very quiet.
