The collections of the Folklore Museum today contain a total of more than 20,000 objects dating from the 15th to the middle of the 20th century.
At the highest point of the city is Bezesteni, which operated as a covered cloth market during the Ottoman Empire. It was built in the ancient citadel of Larissa, also known as the Fortress and dates back to the late 15th and early 16th century. The former “Pappas Mill” is today a museum of cultural heritage and hosts a variety of cultural activities.
On the hill of the fortress dominates the church of Agios Achillios, the patron saint of Larissa.
The contribution of Foreign Schools, such as the French Institute is important for the cultural life in Larissa, because, in addition to educational activities, several cultural events are organized.
