Perched upon the northern slopes of Ziria (Kyllini) are the 3 settlements that comprise the region of Trikala. The highest, Ano Trikala, reaches to 1060 meters, and the lower Kato Trikala, to 900 meters. The town offers the largest tourism infrastructure on the Kyllini (Ziria) mountain. Traditional stone houses, cozy courtyards, welcoming squares and churches , all surrounded by a lush fir forest, offer a beauty which more and more visitors seek. If you find yourself in Trikala, worthwhile sites to visit are the Church of Agios Demetrios in Kato Trikala, the Monastery of Kimisis tis Theotokou (Assumption) in Mid-Trikala, the Agios Nikolaos Church in Ano Trikala and the Monastery of Agios Vlasis, which is even higher than Ano Trikala. Favorite spots for relaxation in these villages include the little parks under the shade of the giant plane trees, lively children’s playgrounds, and the village square with its traditional cafes.
