Larisa is a city of Thessaly, the capital of the homonymous prefecture, as well as the Region of Thessaly. It is also designated as the seat of the Decentralized Administration of Thessaly - Sterea Hellas. It is an important commercial center and a communications and communications hub. The city occupies an area of approximately 19,000 acres. According to the 2011 census, the permanent population of the Municipality of Larissa amounts to 162,591 inhabitants, making it one of the largest populated municipalities in the country and the largest of the Thessalian geographical area.The name of Larissa is pre-Hellenic of pelasgian origin and was particularly widespread in Greece and means a strong fortified hill or acropolis, the name of the citadel of Argos. Also according to mythology the city of Larisa was built in the Pelasgian period by the hero Larisa, son of Pelasgos. According to the ancient legend, the nymph Larisa playing with her ball next to Pinios slipped and drowned in the waters and the city took its name. Larisa, according to mythology, was the wife of Poseidon and mother of Achaeus, Fthia and Pelasgou, or according to another version, she was the daughter of Pelasgou. Far from the legends and traditions of the beautiful nymph, the experts in their attempt to interpret the name of the city believe that it came from elsewhere and was given a lecture, since the low glory of the Fortress does not fit the meaning of the word Larisa , that is to say, this stone acropolis or fortress of the geographical area.
