  Kissos is the 4th region one come across when travelling from Volos. This is a shady, mountain village in an altitude of 500meters above the sea level, built between beeches and chestnut trees coiled by ivies, creating a feast of a totally green landscape. Historically Kissos, between 1881 and 1912 used to be the center of a municipality including the boroughs of Agios Ioannis, Agios Dimitrios, Agios Konstantinos and the village of Anilio. In 1753, according to tradition, Rigas Feraios, taught at its school. At the paved square, one can see the famous Basilica of Agia Marina, built in the 17th c., famous for its golden-platted iconostasis, made of hand curved linden, worked by three generations of artisans from Epirus. The famous artist from Epirus, Ioannis Pagonis, painted its hagiographies. The byzantine icons of the church were donated by monks from Mount Athos. Because of its importance, the church of Agia Marina has been declared a landmark.
