PYLI (Small town) TRIKALA
In the location of the settlement of Porta - Panagia, the Byzantine city Megalai Pylai or Megali Porta was found which in the Ottoman domination was named Porta - Pazari. The English sightseer W. M. Leake, who passed from there in 1810, he reports it as Apano Porta or Porta - Panagia, contrary to the new settlement of Porta, which had already been developed in the right bank of Portaikou and that he reports it as Kato - Porta or Porta - Nicola. Both the two names (Pyli and Porta) are associated with the geographic location of the hamlet. In the settlement of Porta - Panagia, Larissa's Metropolite Vissarion the 2nd (1490-1540) was given birth, who was nominated Saint and patron saint of Trikala, Kalampaka and Pyli.
