In the root of Pindos,
in the entry of a magnificent gorge, which separates the mountains Itamos and
Koziakas, but also links
Thessaly with Ipeiros,
18 km western from Trikala,
is found the hamlet of Pyli, county seat of the homonym municipality. Pyli is
also separated from her settlement of Porta - Panagia by the Portaiko's river.
Pyli has 1991 residents (inventory of 1991). It presents particular interest for
the visitor, because it is found in the centre of important Byzantine and post
Byzantine monuments, but also because it constitutes passage for the graphic villages
of Aspropotamos and Arta.
