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.
Kick off your visit on the 6th (Mon): admire the natural beauty at Varlaam Monastery, take in the spiritual surroundings of Monastery of the Great Meteoron, then contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Holy Trinity Monastery (Agia Triada), then see the interesting displays at Digital Projection Centre of Meteora’s History and Culture, and finally take in the spiritual surroundings of Meteora. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: get to know the resident critters at Filoneikos, then take in panoramic vistas at Trikala Fort, then steep yourself in history at Agios Stefanos, and finally take in the spiritual surroundings of Roussanou Monastery.
