|Lefokastro Village - South Pelion
Lefokastro is a charming picturesque coastal hamlet on the Pagasitic
gulf, 6 km from Argalasti and 34 km from Volos. It provides the
perfect setting for relaxing and peaceful holidays.
A little further out from the hamlet are the ruins of the medieval
castle, while if you take a walk around you will find the 9 Byzantine
churches of the village, the small arched bridge that is
dated from 1891 and the marble fountain with the marble palm of
hands and the two signs written in Turkish and the one with the
two - headed eagle in Greek.
The road that continues from Lefokastro is a small route that goes
through olive groves and isolated beaches and ends in the cosmopolitan
resort of Afissos.
One suggestion for an excursion is the drive to the mountainous
village of Neohori, where you can visit the church of Agios Dimitrios,
that is dated from 1760 and is decorated with frescos by Ioannis
The village is not included in the routes of the KTEL buses of Magnesia,
