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.
Explore Kalambaka's surroundings by going to Metsovo (Averoff Gallery, Folk Art Museum Tossizza Mansion, & more), Lake Plastira (in Krioneri) and Trikala (Kliafa History and Culture Center, Stone Bridge Gate, & more). There's lots more to do: don't miss a visit to Meteora, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Monastery of the Great Meteoron, learn more about the world around you at Natural History Museum of Meteora & Mushroom Museum, and steep yourself in history at Roussanou Monastery.
