Mouresi is one of the oldest villages of Pelion amphitheatrically built, with great views towards the mountain, the neighboring villages of Kissos and Agios Dimitrios and the Αegean Sea, spanning around a forestry mountainside. Its natural beauty and traditional colors are ideal for quiet and peaceful holidays away from the crowds.
The village of Mouresi was initially built in the coast, specifically in the coast of Damouchari, where remains of the old settlement still exist. From 1600-1700 people started moving up creating todays village. Regarding the name origin there’s uncertainty. Some say it is from the many mulberry trees (greek: mouries) or from Myres in Asia Minor from where the first inhabitants came from, others claim it’s from the Slavic word "mours" meaning “finding fertile grounds”. Finally it is said that it derives from the Latin word Bourtz meaning castle, referring to Venetian castle that once stood in Damouchari and today is in ruins.Through its cobbled paths and trails you can tour the village, see the great mansions and the stone houses but also hike towards the neighboring Tsagarada. The houses in this village are not gathered around a central square but scattered around the mountain hills.
