  • It was a beautiful bridge after a long day, on our same day visit. Beautifully decorated, guides stop to pass and good mood. Walk anyway.

  • The pedestrian bridge was recently renovated and is the hallmark of the city. It connects the central square with the bustling pedestrian street of Asklipios. Always cared for the bridge is the best place to enjoy and photograph the river Litheos.

  • Trikala is one of my favorite, if not my favorite, city in Greece. It's clean, its people are very nice and friendly but above all they are very, very, very polite. I was shocked to see that the young people there are so polite that I could not omit to mention my and my daughter and I. Went into a crouded of souvlaki restaurant to have something to eat and without any hesitation two young people just got up and offered their seats to us! It IS THE PLACE to visit at Christmas with the kids.
  • An architectural jewel and a symbolic bridge. The central pedestrian bridge of Trikala is the main connecting point of the city, uniting the trikals, making it the reference point, functioning as a point of unity. Since the end of 1888, when the construction was completed, the bridge was the trademark, precisely because it was the one, the large, the central bridge. French engineers, from the company that built the Thessaly Railroad, edited design, study and construction, apparently inspired by bridges projects on the Seine. The minerals were shipped from France. In the middle of the route of one of the two axes of the city, on the north – south axis, the bridge has connected the old with the new city. Having already been incorporated into the new Greek state (21 August 1881), Trikala began to form a new perspective, based on a new perspective. On a financial level, the city was – and constitutes – a rural and commercial road, a production site for agricultural products and a hub of four-axes: Giannena – Larissa, Lamia – Grevena. Moreover, the city of Trikala constituted a western and northern tip of the bridgehead against the armaments of Aspropotamos, Agrafa and Hassia during the Ottoman domination. Since 1881, this role has been officially changed (although its importance has been diminished since the mid-18th century, with the transfer of the capital of Thessaly, from Trikala to Larissa). Nowadays, Trikala is the main shopping street, the main road connecting four (current) regions: Thessaly, Epirus, Sterea Ellada, western Macedonia. The bridge gives the feeling of airy construction and at the same time rests on solid foundations. In 1941 he escaped the blast of the retreating British troops. In 1996 it was declared a historic listed monument. In 1997 it stood up, becoming a reference point with its new look. In 2015 it was renovated, while architectural lighting was installed. Its originality lies in its function, as it is used as a square, as a place of rest, as a meeting place for the youth. It is a pole of attraction for visitors and trikals, as it “communicates” with the wet element and talks with Asclepius, which looks at the city.
