Agios Lavrentios is at 21Km from Volos at an altitude
of 650m, a few kilometers lower from the Ski Centre.
The village of Agios Lavrentios is one of the few in
Pelion where the traditional architecture of the area
has been preserved so strongly while at the same time
it has an excellent network of cobblestone roads.
The Guesthouse is at a few meters' distance from the
main square of the village where there are traditional
coffee houses and nice tavernas where you can eat. The
Gusthouse is at 15km distance from the beach and 30km
distance from the airport.
before the entrance of the village there is a crossroad
leading to the monastery of the same name which gave
its name to the village. The monastery which is active
today as a nunnery, was built by the venerable Lavrentios
in 1375 on the ruins of a previous convent built on the
12th century by monks of the Order of St. Benedict. Even
though what draws most attention is the purple dome,
what is of true value in the church is its chancel screen
made of gilted carved wood and its icons.
