Kalampaka is built next to the massive, holy rocks of Meteora, while, the river Pineios runs next to them. It had been inhabited since ancient times, known as “Eginio”. Each year, it is visited by more than 2,000,000 tourists. Next to Kalambaka, there is the picturesque village of Kastraki, which expands at the basis of the gigantic rocks of Meteora.
The imperious, detached rocks, the height of which may reach, in some cases, 400 meters, are a unique geological phenomenon. They cover an area of approximately thirty square kilometers. In 1989, UNESCO included Meteora in the list of UNESCO World Heritage Monuments, as a cultural and natural asset of primordial significance.
