Koziakas: Asklipios’ “pharmacy”
The divine figure of Asklipios has been linked with Mount Koziakas or otherwise Mount Kerketio, since he was able to find his precious therapeutic herbs down its paths, through the evergreen fir trees, in its deep canyons and close to the gushing springs.
Nowadays, the “seeds” of Asklipios still grow in rare biodiversity, still bearing aromatic and medicinal plants. In the Municipality of Trikala, you also have the chance to visit the therapeutic garden of Asklipios located in its natural environment, on forest trails that bring you closer to the healings of our land. With abundant aromatic plants and herbs, Mount Koziakas is the place, where unique oregano, balm leaves, Greek shepherd’s tea, mint, mountain tea, wild roses, and other wild herbs join together, combining their special benefits for diet, health, aesthetics and mainly for the identity of the land of Trikala.
