Kalambaka

Trip Planner Europe  /  Greece  /  Thessaly  /  Trikala Region  /  Kalambaka
The gateway to one of the largest monastery complexes in Greece, the small town of Kalambaka nestles against a landscape of imposing rock formations rising 400 m (1,300 ft) into the air. Nearly leveled during World War II, the town rebuilt and reinvented itself in the post-war period, quickly becoming one of the region's major travel destinations. Its monasteries, inscribed on the World Heritage List, appear as natural extensions of the towering sandstone pillars formed by erosion and other geological changes over 15 million years. Use Kalambaka as a base for day trips into the surrounding countryside. Add Kalambaka and other Greece destinations to your travel plans using our Greece travel route planner.
