Το βουνό των κενταύρων το Φθινόπωρο -The mountain of the Centaurs in the autumn

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

The whole area is an inexhaustible treasure of myths, legends, history and cultural tradition and a paradise for nature lovers, the naturalists, and historians, and for millennia have walked the gods, demigods and centaurs, giants and titans , nymphs and Dryades, kings, heroes and warriors. There was also the scope of "Gigantomachy" and the favorite resort of the gods of Olympus. Pelion took place and the Nereid Thetis's marriage to the mortal Peleus. During the reception that followed the goddess Eris, who was not invited, threw among the guests a golden apple with the inscription "the Kallisti" which of course claimed the three beautiful goddesses. The decision of the arbitrator Paris, prince of Troy, give the apple to Aphrodite was fatal to his family and his country. A few years later the immortal Achilles son of Peleus and Thetis, was instrumental in the Trojan War and his participation therein and heroism during the siege of Troy in the 12th century. Pelion went hunting gods, kings and princes. Here too was the marriage of Peleus with Thetis, and the first beauty contest between the beautiful - and powerful ... - goddesses Hera, Athena and Aphrodite. Pelion lived and legendary Centaurs, the most famous of which was a wise teacher Chiron. Gods, demigods, kings, princes and heroes, among whom was Heracles, Achilles, Jason, and Asclepius have studied close to Chiron, who taught them including archery and the art of war, music and virtue. They also imparted his knowledge of the medicinal properties of hundreds of herbs and plants that still grow in Pelion. Asclepius very soon surpassed his teacher so much that created the snake, source of life and death, which is today the symbol of medicine.
