PELION BEACHES DAMOUCHARI

DAMOUCHARI
Damouchari is the only natural harbour on the wild Aegean side of Pelion. According to a Venetian legend the name Damouhari derives from the Greek expression 'dos mou hari' which means 'give me grace' and was a prayer of the seamen when in danger in the area. The castle built by the Venetians protected the storehouse and the only station of the area for tired sailors, from the frequent raids of pirates. These very storehouses were used by the locals to store the products they traded, until cars reached the numerous villages around and stopped the sailing of the ships into the harbour. The remains of these buildings add to the beauty of the special landscape and are in complete harmony with Pelion grace. This beach is famous for its big round, white pebbles and the famous twin coves of Damouhari, a masterpiece of natural beauty. Also in the little church of St. Nicolas are the wonderful sacred paintings by Pagonis from 1800 AD.
