Afissos is a pretty village with plenty of Archontika (old aristocratic) buildings set amphitheatrically on the water’s edge giving an island feel to it.  It is a very well known seaside holiday resort 26 km from the town of Volos.

Visit the square with the centuries old plane trees providing cool shade to those enjoying their coffee or lunch.

Tradition says that the spring that flows from the square was the same one that Jason and the Argonauts used for their supplies on their journey towards Kolhida. It is likely that Afissos took its name from the ancient verb ‘to leave’ (afinmi), as the Argonauts left with great sorrow to continue their journey.

The scared church of the village is dedicated to Agia Marina, whilst right next to the church and under the bell tower there is a small chapel dedicated to the memory of Agia Paraskevi whose feast day is celebrated on 26th July. Agia Marina’s is celebrated on 17th July.

The coastal road is full of small hotels, rented rooms, tavernas, ouzeries, restaurants, cafeterias and bars though Afissos retains its traditional color.

You can enjoy swimming at the beaches of Kallifteri, Lagoudi and Ambovos.
