The cultural heritage of Tsagarada…

Agios Athanasios en Atho chapel in Tsagarada, Pelion Agios Athanasios en Atho chapel is located at an altitude of 820 meters, surrounded by oak and chestnut trees.

Construction date of the chapel was September 1888 and as evidenced by the inscription above the main entrance, the cost was covered by Maria Dim. Kapetanopoulou.
Agios Athanasios en Atho chapel can be reached by following the dirt road that starts from either the district of Agia Paraskevi or the district of Agioi Taxiarches. At the point where the two roads meet, is the chapel.

It is one of the most picturesque chapels of the entire Pelion mountain and it could be the ideal place for «brave» couples to host their wedding ceremony.
The area around the chapel has been formed with wooden tables and benches and during the celebration a festival is organised where numerous residents from Tsagarada as well as the surrounding villages are gathering.

Despite the age and the location, chapel kept in a very good condition. Altitude of chapel's location must be borne in mind as well as the fact that during the winter time the ammount of snow is a quite high.
Furthermore, the signs on chapel's roof are visible in the photos.
