Kalambaka

Trip Planner Europe  /  Greece  /  Thessaly  /  Trikala Region  /  Kalambaka
(4.5/5 based on 6,500+ reviews for top 20 attractions)
Things to do: trails, religious sites, museums
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. When using our Greece tourist route planner, you're building your holiday based on your own interests, visitor reviews, and the informed opinions of our well-traveled writers.
