Pieria is a significant historic prefecture and a geophysically privileged region. It spreads between the big rivers Pineios and Aliakmonas, and includes two of the most renowned mountains in the country, Mount Olympus and Pieria Mountains which are both associated with the birth of the Greek nation. The prefecture of Pieria is seen as the heart of Greece, since the Olympian cult developed here and then it spread to the entire eastern Mediterranean as a bearer, additional to that of language, of the national conscience and unity of the Greek nation.
As a tourist destination, Pieria combines History and Nature in a unique harmony, and it is easy to access. It is located at the centre of Greece, at a nodal point in the central road axis Athens - Thessaloniki - Evzonoi, and almost next to the second largest urban centre of the country, the city of Thessaloniki, with its major transport and cultural infrastructure.
Pieria manages an excellent combination of all the conditions necessary to attract the contemporary traveler and holiday-maker. Unique mountains and outstanding beaches, very close to one another. Important ancient sites and significant wetlands. Well-organised tourist infrastructure. In general, Pieria is a blessed land, offering a number of diverse interests and perfect infrastructures, that is really worth our visit. Apart from its pleasures and graces, Pieria and its people still preserve the gift of hospitality they inherited from Xenios Zeus (Zeus as protector of guests).
