Photographer's Note

Makrinitsa overlooks the city of Volos.
Because of this view the village is locally known as the balcony of Pelion.

The roofs of the mansions and buildings in Pelion are a distinctive element of the local architecture. They are always covered with the famous grey slates that are locally mined. In other parts of Greece, these slates are usually an orange / brown colour, and the grey apperance is only usually found in Pelion.
