The Rock of Aghio Pnevma

The rock of Aghio Pnevma (Holy Spirit) is located the middle of the valley that extends from the village of Kastraki towards the vast rock complex of Meteora.

On its top a plateau is formed, where a chapel dedicated to the Holy Spirit was once erected. This tiny monastery was the oldest one in the region of Meteora, dating to the 10th century. The long-shaped caves on the side of the main road where scaffolding is still visible indicate the spot that served as a prison where the monks were expelled. The view from the top is absolutely breath-taking. Religious ceremonies are often held on the rock of Aghio Pnevma.
