kissos pelion

Kissos is a small mountain village in Pelion that has dense vegetation consisting of beech, chestnut and walnut trees that literally hide it in some areas. It’s one of the quietest villages of east Pelion with uninterrupted views towards the Aegean Sea where you can enjoy relaxing holidays combining mountain and sea.
Its name is probably due to the ivy (Kissos), wrapped in tall trees always trying to reach higher and higher. There is of course a version from the historian G.Kordatos according to which the name derives from the misuse of the word Khrisos (Greek: gold). If you’re wondering about the relationship between Kissos and gold, the answer lies in the past when an ore mine was discovered and when villagers wanted to talk about gold they referred to it as “K’so”. From there according to this version derived the name "Kissos."
