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.
Get some historical perspective at Byzantine Church of the Assumption of Virgin Mary and Roussanou Monastery. Do some cultural sightseeing at Geological Formation Museum of Meteora and Monastery of the Great Meteoron. Step out of Kalambaka with an excursion to Porta Panagia in Pyli--about 44 minutes away. And it doesn't end there: examine the collection at Digital Projection Centre of Meteora’s History and Culture, get engrossed in the history at Hellenic Culture Museum, contemplate the long history of Holy Trinity Monastery (Agia Triada), and take in the spiritual surroundings of Agios Stefanos.
