St Stephen's Holy Monastery

Local nameThe Holy Monastery of Aghios Stephanos
LocationKalambaka, Greece

The present monastery was built in the 16th century on ruins of older buildings from the 12th century. It now serves as a convent for a community of nuns. It also offers amazing views of the valley and the river.

The monastery consists of two cathedrals - the old 16th-century church which was damaged during World War II, and the 18th-century main cathedral dedicated to Saint Charalambos, which also houses his holy relics. The old kitchen has been turned into a museum which showcases manuscripts and other religious items.
