Hania is a mountain settlement located at an altitude of 1200m, one of the highest points of Pelion. It has lush vegetation consisting of mainly beech, chestnut and fir trees and connects west Pelion with east Pelion. Over the last years it has great tourism growth as more and more travelers visit it, especially during winter.
The region was named after the old guesthouses (greek: hania) that existed and offered accommodation to travelers and merchants. Some are still preserved until today.
