We are a group based in Pelion, Greece. We have formed a society ‘The Friends of the Kalderimi of South Pelion’ A Kalderimi is a cobbled mule path. They were constructed hundreds of years ago linking villages to one another. With the advance of mechanised transport many of these kalderimies have fallen into disuse and disappeared under a forest of vegetation.
Our groups aims to promote and engage in the reopening and use of these paths. So far we have established a network of about 80km of signed walking routes. Some of these are on kalderimi, and others on earth roads or simple footpaths.
We organise group walks, encourage membership to our society, fundraise and work parties.
You are welcome to get involved.
