Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    What a beautiful place! And what a view, to look at from below and to look from above to Kalambaki and surroundings. And to think that humans built that unimaginable methods and power.
    It's not as difficult to walk up to as it might seem. And if you need a breather, just püretend to take pictures. There are many reasons to do so.

    To think the effort placed to build this monastery up this rock is astonishing. The view from the patio to the valley below is wonderful the Church, very well preserved, well maintained and clean is worth the effort to travel here.

    From the 3 monasteries we visited this one was the most traditional and interesting one. It is not crowded and not touristic. You need to take steps down from the main road inside an amazing forest to reach the final steps up to the monastery. The staff is very kind and helpfull. The interior is very beautiful and very clean. The shop had the most amazing and beaautiful souvenirs of the area and we regret it that we didnt take more things from there is in the city of Kalampaka you do not find so beautiful souvenirs.
    Is one of the highest recommended monasteries to visit.
    The only negative which is found in all monasteries is the public bathroom which to tell the truth is broken and disgusting. No hygiene at all. Its a shame for a place like this, for a monastery that earns so much money for a religious place to have a bathroom worse than a third division football stadium.

    I enjoyed seeing this small monastery while in the area and catching a glimpse of what life would have been like here over the centuries.

    This tiny church can be found just outside the small hilly village of Sarakina. There is a small sign on the road close to the more modern church of the village. We found the key of the church under a stone in the left wall close to the door. If not there we heard it could be obtained in the “kafenio” (traditional cafe) of the village.

    It is a very lovely small byzantine church built in stone. It had some lovely hagiography murals dating back to 1325. This beautiful and distinctive church is set in a quiet and lovely spot with a huge old olive tree just outside of it. It was well worth a stop on our way.
