It is located at the foot of Mount Pelion [Πήλιο], and it is according to the legend on its slopes that the gods of Olympus spent… their summer holidays, without forgetting the stories of the wars and the exploits of its main occupants, in namely, the mythical Centaurs [Κένταυρος], which it seems, are heard again and again.
