Karditsa is the youngest city of Thessaly and capital of Karditsa perfecture, and it is named like this because it is found in the heart of the thessalian plain. One of its features is the Pafsilipo park, a recreation area full of natural beauty, with free gorgeous peacocks as residents. Having a city tour, park your car and borrow one of the bikes offered by the municipality.

Do not forget to visit the building of the Municipal Market which was built in 1930 and is a true example of architecture of that time.
