Pertouli in Trikala
Built on the slopes of Mt Koziakas, the oblong mountain of the southern part of the Pindos, the picturesque villages of Elati and Pertouli are a major attraction of the wider area, not to mention a top winter destination throughout the country.
At 54km from the city of Trikala and 1.090m high on the slopes of Mt Koziakas, Pertouli is one more fascinating village built in an amphitheatre shape among thick woods, green fields and running waters. Once a meeting point for the farmers of the area, it is now a winter destination that stands out for its scenic houses with the red-tiled or stone roofs, its ski resort, and its excellent tourist infrastructure.
Sarakatsanaioi, the nomadic shepherds of the Greek mainland who are originated from all around the Pindos mountain range but may live the world across, meet here on their international annual meeting every May.
