description

The Prefecture's capital is a beautiful city built on the location of ancient Trikki (according to mythology the nymph Trikki was the daughter of Pinios).  Asklipios, the most important doctor of antiquity, originated from here.  The Lithaios River flows through the city which is distinguished by historical Monuments, excellent urban planning, spacious squares, parks and pedestrian streets.

The fir-clad Pindos mountain range with the traditional villages is there for you to discover. Elati and Pertouli (with its ski resort) and Pyli have developed to become famous destinations with winter holiday makers. At a stone's throw there is also the world famous breathtaking site of Meteora, a unique geological phenomenon, protected by UNESCO.  Many visitors flood the 24 monasteries which were built 600 years ago on the top of the Meteora rocks.
