In our beautiful Pelion is hidden a treasure that could only belong to the imagination… or rather to mythology! The reason for the “Path of the Centaurs”. Yes, those anthropomorphic monsters, the bottom of which was horse and the top human. We all know Chiron as the teacher of every great hero, like Hercules and Achilles. That wise immortal peacemaker to whom mortals sought for divination, astronomy, music, or medicine. However, not many people know their history!

Neolithic Settlement of Dimini
Dimini (Greek: Διμήνι, older form: Διμήνιον) is a village near the city of Volos, in Thessaly (Central Greece), in Magnesia. It was the home base of the municipality of Eisonia. The name Aisonia dates back to antiquity and is the westernmost part of the region of Volos. The area of Dimini includes both a Mycenaean settlement and a Neolithic settlement. The Neolithic settlement in Dimini was discovered at the end of the 19th century and was first excavated by archaeologists Christos Tsountas and Valerios Stai.
