Welcome to Trikala
Roughly halfway between Karditsa and Kalambaka is Trikala, an attractive and bustling agricultural centre straddling the narrow, tree-lined Lithaios river. The first thing you might notice about the town are the bicycles. Many souls, young and old, pedal around on their two-wheeler 10-speeds and fixies. Trikala was once ancient Trikki, and home to Asclepius, the god of healing. A statue honouring the mythic doctor stands on a small bridge by the main square where, coincidentally, the city loans bikes for free.
