Kastraki

4.9
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. Kastraki is in Kalambaka. Our Greece trip itinerary maker tool allows you to schedule your trip to Kastraki, learn about its attractions, and find out about where else to go during your holiday.

Where to stay in Kastraki

Most people just speed through Kastraki on their way to the area's famed monastic complex, which means that affordable lodgings remain available even at the height of the tourist season. Small and friendly, Kastraki's guesthouses combine traditional architecture with modern amenities, offering cozy rooms with panoramic mountain views. For something a bit more luxurious, consider renting a suite at one of the area's 19th-century mansions, which provide private parking and quick access to shopping and dining.
