Today, the main occupations of the inhabitants of Makrinitsa are tourism, agriculture (chestnuts, apples, herbs, etc.) and lumbering.
The microclimate of the village (humidity = zero) is superb all year round. The main square (altitude 650) with running waters and century-old plain trees joins the lower and upper quarters of the village with a network of well-preserved cobble-stoned paths, full of beautiful trails, flower gardens, Byzantine churches and stone fountains.
In the taverns of Makrinitsa you can eat well or enjoy a drink in the bars of the village.
