Above the old town of the Trikala is this fortress and in the middle the clock tower. It's a bit uphill to climb, but it's worth the view from there. Do not miss a visit.

It is the ideal place to enjoy the view of the city is not far away and the environment is very well-groomed and the café-restaurant ideal for every occasion.

It was nice you could watch the city from above. It gives you a different perspective of the surroundings. The tower is open until 14:00 so you have to go there early.

View from the Tower over the whole Trikala is really nice and worth of climbing, but Fortress itself does not offer a lot, although it could be possible with a bit more effort made by host.

A very old castle in very good condition. It is fascinating to look at the archers' slots and see the craftsmanship that has lasted 1500 years. The visit inspires you to do a bunch of a Google research. There is an amphitheater which was holding...More
