For this blessed place the history talks by itself. The beauty is described in its name. Kalamaki (reed) comes from the homonymous divine beach, located just 2 km from the village, where clear, drinkable water wells out of a natural spring between the rocks. The old habitats used to put a long, bamboo style, reed (called Kalamaki in Greek) in order to create a small spring to drink the water or use it for a bath. The second name Propan comes from the Greek word "Propantos", meaning the first of all the others.
This is because Propan is situated in the north east of Pelion and it is the first of all other villages to face the Aegean Sea and the sun that rises from Aegean. This is the location where the traditional Pelion-stones, also known as 'Propan-stones', are being extracted. It is from these stones that, amongst others, the monasteries at the Holy Mountain Athos as well as the cobbled paths (called kalderimia in Greek) in all over Pelion were built.
