The mountain range of Pieria is of particular beauty. Our ancestors did not choose this location for the "Home of the Muses of Pieria", the patrons of art and science, by chance. Here you will find paths of exquisite natural beauty along which you can take peaceful walks. On the other hand, however, for those of you seeking excitement and adventure there are also plenty of paths through Pieria to stir up the heart and emotions. All the main routes through the Pierian mountains converge on the two refuges, shelters situated at 1000 m and 1680 m respectively. the first shelter is situated in the village of Ano Milia, and belongs to the "Greek Mountaineering Club" of Katerini. The European mountain path E4 crosses Pieria at this point on its way to Olympus.
