The Holy peninsula of Mount Athos is an isolated and remaining away from civilization place.
With 20 over monasteries active at the whole peninsula body, Mount Athos is a worldwide unique place.
Dedicated to the Christian Orthodox dogma is a place that stays almost untouched by time. Many of the monasteries were build 1000 years ago at medieval times.
On to this peninsula and the nearby wider area are the rich forests of Chestnut trees and Arbutus wild bushes.
As those precious herbs prefer a high altitude to fully grow, so to give their best quality, Greek kouzina is sourcing those herbs from Olympus Mountain, which it has the ideal climate conditions for those herbs.
Olympus is the highest mountain in Greece with its peak standing at almost 3000 meters above sea level ( 2,917 m ).
It was according the Ancient Greeks the home of the twelve Gods.
Olympus is still considered a Holy Mountain in Greece.
At the roots of Olympus mountain we have every summer the rituals of Promethea, The worshipers of the Ancient Greek 12 Gods.
The international famous Olympus Marathon is also held yearly at Olympus.
Extra Virgin Olive Oil and Chamomile are coming from this area.
Pelion the mountain of the mythical Centaurs, a wild nature’s wonder, this amazing place has a deep in time history.
From this place also – the ancient Iolkos – started his trip for the conquest of the Golden Fleece, Jason and his Argonauts.
They went at a long sea adventure with their famous ship Argo. A rebuild of that famous ship, is today at Volos City harbor, fully functional with its 50 rowers. Some photos of this amazing ship, below.
At the seaside areas are growing Olive trees that are harvesting one of the highest quality Extra Virgin Olive Oil we get for Greek kouzina customers.
Pelion has a unique climate, as a combination of its very sharp mountain and sea connected together.
From the same area is also our highly aromatic Chamomile of Greek kouzina.
