Monastery of Panagia Portarea

The monastery of Panagia Portarea is one of the most important churches of Portaria since it also gave its name to the area.

It was built in the first half of the 13th century and the original settlement was organized around it. The central entrance is adorned with the icon of the Virgin Mary.

The frescoes date back to 1581 while the carved wooden iconostasis was built in the early 18th century. The church shares its suburban area with the church of Agios Nikolaos, which is located right next door and is worth a visit.

Holy Monastery of Saint Gerasimos Makrinitsa, Pelion

At a distance of 17 km from Volos and just 2.5 km from the hotel is the holy monastery which was originally a cell built by St Gerasimos for prayer and in 1741 a church was built in his honor.
The monastery was finally built in 1795 with the first church in 1741 and the two-story building in 1795.
