The rock of Aghio Pnevma (Holy Spirit)
The rock of Aghio Pnevma (Holy Spirit) is located in the middle of the narrow valley that extends from the central square of village of Kastraki towards the vast rock complex of Meteora.
On its top, a plateau is formed where a small chapel dedicated to the Holy Spirit was once erected. This tiny monastery was the oldest one in the region of Meteora, dating back to the 10th century. The long-shaped caves on the north side of this same rock, as seen from the side of the main road where scaffolding is still visible inside, indicate the spot served as a place of punishment where the monks of Meteora were expelled over the previous centuries. The view from the top of the cliff is absolutely breath-taking. Religious ceremonies are often held on the rock of Aghio Pnevma when locals celebrate “Holy Ghost” day.
