The narrow streets and the oldest churches in the area add to the neighborhood's picturesque.The old houses of the district date back to the 17th and 19th centuries. The building materials of the houses are wood, reeds, plaster and bricks. The houses have «sachnisia" (indoor enclosed space protruding from the building's trunk). Most of the oldest churches of Trikala are located in the district of Varoussi.
The mansions of Varoussi and the numerous churches reflect the economic and cultural flourishing of the 18th and 19th centuries that were the result of the development of trade and crafts.
A large number of churches, mostly rebuilt in the 19th century, enrich the traditional ensemble.Varoussi has been declared a «traditional part of the city" with Presidential Decree 28-2-79 (Government Gazette 201D/5-4-79), and has acquired special building conditions (Presidential Decree 1,2 and maximum height of 2 floors with 9.00 m) with the Presidential Decree of its declaration and Presidential Decree 16-9-82 (Government Gazette 529D/29-10-82).

For this district a comprehensive study of the buildings (in the framework of EPA in 1987) was carried out, based on which the older buildings were dated from 1800 to 1900 and for 55 of them it was proposed that they be classified as preserved with «absolute protection» or «visual protection» the "shell protection» For all these buildings did not proceed with their declaration from
Ministry of Environment and Climate Change, while individual buildings have been declared by the Ministry of Culture (with earlier declarations in 1965) or are declared today in cases where a demolition permit is applied for.
As a result of the lack of statutory protection of the buildings in Varoussi, many buildings of significant historical and architectural value are threatened with demolition by their owners even though the area has been designated a "traditional part» by the Ministry of Environment, Public Works and in addition any act of building or demolition is controlled by the tax office of modern monuments of the Ministry of Culture, according to
The CHURCHES OF Varoussi
Varoussi is located on the northeast side of the city and extends to the slopes of two hills, the Fortress and Prophet Elijah. A strong point of reference that played a decisive role in its structure and life are the churches, on whose territory are hidden ancient secrets,seven within the settlement and two at its edges. These churches were built around
1600 but most of them were rebuilt in the 19th century.
Older churches are smaller in size and poor in appearance. They are integrated into the settlement without any distinctive element, which was dictated by the difficult conditions faced by the Greek
community in the first centuries of Turkish occupation. In contrast, in the 19th century, with the greater tolerance of the Turks, the wider economic capacity and development of the Greek community, there was the comfort of making the churches bigger, richer, clearly highlighted
in the settlement. Thus many churches are rebuilt to the standards of the large three-aisled basilica that has been spreading since the 18th century, on an almost panhellenic scale, replacing the old single-aisled temples. Today's surviving old and new temples of this traditional district, in chronological order, are:
1) Saint Demetrios.
It is a small church with newer additions, located in the neighbourhood of Varoussi, on Agion Anargyron Street. Its erection is placed, not with certainty, before 1588. It has frescoes of the 17th century, while its iconostasis was renovated in 1839.
2) Agioi Anargyroi Kosmas and Damianos.
It is also located in Varoussi district, in the southeast of the fortress, on Agioi Anargyroi street. It has old and interesting frescoes. It's unknown when it was erected. Fundamental renovation and history (hagiography) took place in 1575. It is said that beneath the church of Agioi Anargyroi is the Asclepieion of Trikkis, not a non-existent position, considering that the Christian temples were founded on ancient sanctuaries. In the church of Agioi Anargyroi there are two chapels, Agios Efthymios and Agios Spyridon.
3) Saint John the Merciful and Saint Panteleimon.
In the Varoussi district, behind the large church of Panagia Faneromeni and in front of the stairs, from which we climb the fortress, there is the small single-aisled arched church of Agios Ioannis the Merciful and Agios Panteleimon. He's got nice murals, too. For its dating there are no precise data, it is likely to be contemporary with the church of Agioi Anargyroi (late 16th to early 17th century).

liberation of the city from the Turks, during which the poet Christos Christovasilis recited his poem "Our
