This Medieval fort/castle is located within the town, next to the neighborhood of Varousi. Founded by the Emperor Justinian in the 6thC, the fort includes the town’s famous Clock Tower which was rebuilt in 1936, as well as the Byzantine Churches of the Transfiguration of the Savior and Archangel Michael.
Explore the area, and get a taste of the town’s Medieval and Byzantine past. Note that the castle consists of three areas, like sections. One of the most beautiful sections is that part that contains the clock tower. Trikala Town’s municipal government landscaped the area and has now turned it into a beautiful park. Lounge on the lawns and take a picnic lunch with you as you eat in the shadow of one of the city’s most important landmarks. After, head to the theater built in the next section. If you’re visiting during the summer, catch a performance here. It’s a unique sight.
