This monastery is just down the hill from the Great Meteora. Although not quite as high as the Holy Trinity, it has spectacular views of the stone forest and the village of Kastraki.

While the hills between Kalambaka and the monasteries are a maze of goat trails, there are also a few good people trails. Take the uphill street beside the Hotel Divani and continue upwards to the edge of town. Where the road morphs into a trail, continue past the olive grove and into the wilds. This trail will take you to the Holy Trinity Monastery. There is also a branch you can take that comes out just below Saint Barbara’s Monastery. Another good trail starts at the bottom of the stairs when you come out of the Great Meteora. Although the beginning is a bit rough, the trail improves as you follow it down. There is a branch that connects to Varlaam Monastery. When you get below Varlaam, stop to explore the caves that most recently have been used to shelter sheep. If you continue on to the bottom, you come out near St. Nicholas Monastery.

The church, like much of this monastery has been refurbished. The inside walls are covered with frescoes. These are not for the faint of heart since they depict in graphic detail the persecution of early Christians by the Romans.

From here, you can easily see bubbles in the monolith directly behind the village where early monks hid from their tormentors.

It is fascinating to see how this edifice grows out of the very rock it is built on. The early monks were indeed ingenious, industrious fellows.

The long climb up the stairs is rewarded by bird’s eye views of Kastraki. Peer over the edge to see the trail the winds up the hill from the top of the village.
