The name of our apartments "Kallisti" comes from one of the myths that originated from Pelion, where the wedding of King Peleas and the Godess Thetis took place. During the wedding reception, the Godess Eris, who was not invited to the wedding, snuck into the reception hiding amongst the others guests. She was carrying a golden apple that was enscribed "For the Most Beautiful" ( Ti Kallisti ).
This apple was claimed by the three most charming Godesses, Athena, Hera and Venus. The decision as to who would be awarded the apple was that of Paris ( Price of Troja ), who acted as referee. He awarded the apple to Venus, a move that ultimately had dire consequences for both his family and country. Years later, the "immortal" Achilles, son of Peleas and Thetis, made a huge contribution to the Trojan War, and his heroic acts during the seige were forever immortalised.
The region of Pelion has played an important role in the history of Greece, both in terms of mythology, as well as real history. Mount Pelion was the home also the home of the Mythical Centaurs, as well as the departure point for Jason and the Argonauts who sailed off in search of the Golden Fleese.
