Fortress- Gazing over the city
Next to the citadel of Trikala, the imposing Byzantine fortress now serves as a monument, but it is also a point of reference for cultural events, as well as theatrical plays. In a nearby hill closer to the city, the first signs of the history of this place are still evident and refer to an ancient temple on the top of the hill. As we walk down the stone steps through the erect walls, in the second tier, we feel the course of time from 1986, coming its long way until now.
Ιn the well-known clock of Trikala, a timeless photography exhibition reveals the journey of the whole city through time. Walking up the stairs, a light leads to a perimeter balcony, each point of which offers a different view of the city up until the gold-green valley that surrounds it.
Starting from the Byzantine stone-made domical vaults, Ottoman elements are maintained until today, after the use of the castle as a stronghold. The Varousi neighborhood spreads around it, only several steps down, as an effect and origin of its dominance.
