The Half-Island of Pelion

This stone forest, unique in the world, has since 1988 been listed as a World Heritage Site. The giant rocks are believed to have come from the sand and the stones of a river, which over 25 million years ago, when Thessaly along with Hasia and the region of Grevena was a sea, discharged into the area of Kalambaka.

Later, when the waters drew back, the massifs of the material that lay under the surface of the sea were revealed and distributed among many rocks, given the different physical and geological phenomena. It is in these masses of rock that the first monks found a refuge, from as early as the 9th century.
