Kastraki

4.8
Sacred & Religious Sites · Specialty Museums
A small hamlet with traditional stone buildings, Kastraki serves as a convenient base camp for day trips to one of Greece's largest monastic complexes, designated as a World Heritage Site. The village sits at the base of two towering rock formations, responsible for the landscape's otherworldly look and feel. Although most people just pass through Kastraki on their way to the monastery complex, lingering in this peaceful village rewards travelers with a taste of everyday life in a typical provincial settlement. Visit the monasteries early in the morning, before tour buses from Athens arrive. Add Kastraki and other Greece destinations to your travel plans using our Greece journey tool.
