Footpath of Holy Spirit (Agio Pnevma)

A sign can be found at the northern part of the main square of Kastraki. The sign has green circles which you will find along the track to show the correct direction from the old city of Kastraki to the fountains of Neraeda. There continues a dirt road with broken pieces of rock turning into a slow accent up to what was, in the past, a Monastery dedicated to the Holy Spirit. It’ s about an hour walk with a beautiful view at the top. You can find today the old church dedicated to the Holy Spirit dating from the 14th century.

Useful advice!

  • The best season for walking at the Holy Meteora is Spring and Autumn. If you are walking in the Summer, you will need to have a lot of water with you. You should also avoid walking in the heat of the day (11.00 – 4.00 pm). In the Winter you should also avoid areas that are very wet and slippery.
  • You should wear shoes that are correct for such sports.
  • Please respect the holiness of the site and maintain the proper behavior.
  • Please keep the area clean of all forms of rubbish.
You can better organize your hiking excursion with the help of the private tourist offices in our city. Experienced drivers will guide you to the magical paths of Meteora.
