Manavika- Streets of flavours and aromas
What is the connecting link between old and modern Trikala? An adventurous city exploration and moments of relaxation and pleasure? Manavika! This place is the ultimate picturesque description of a market from another era, which was carefully preserved and is still a neighborhood of flavors and aromas, since local restaurants are accommodated there. The narrow streets of Manavika are easy to find, as they are in the heart of Trikala, linking the modern city with the old, well-preserved city of Varousi. Somewhere over there, you smell roasted meat, a scent which leads to local traditional restaurants.
It really looks like a big feast in winter or summer, where visitors can join locals, taste well-cooked local flavor and enjoy people’s care.
With the breath-taking view to the imposing Fortress, the whole history of Trikala is comes to life through a huge fresco with the leading musical figure Vasilis Tsitsanis and through a synthesis of images from everyday life in the city, which is human.
The history of this place tarts from 1920, while, at one point, there was the farmers market or manavika (grocery stores), after which it was named. This folk architectural construction now houses several remarkable restaurants and clubs.
