Photographer's Note

Makrinitsa is a picturesque village, precariously perched on a precipitous cliff, at an elevation of 850 m. In fact, the slope is so steep, that the difference in elevation between the village’s highest and lowest buildings is in the vicinity of 500 m!
The central square, which overlooks the city of Volos, affords the visitor an exquisite view.
It is, therefore, no wonder that Makrinitsa is locally known as the “Balcony of the Pelion”.
The Pelion is a mountain at the southeastern part of Thessaly in central Greece, forming a hook-like peninsula between the Pagasetic Gulf and the Aegean Sea.The mountain is thickly forested and a hiking paradise, with old paths between the beautiful villages, like Makrinitsa.
