Towered over by the Meteora's otherworldly pinnacles, the Greek town of Kalambaka centers around its main square that's dotted with fountains and surrounded by lively tavernas.
A small town of 12,000, the town is fairly new, much of the original having been burned to the ground by the Nazis in WWII.
Rebuilt after the end of the war, Kalambaka is busy with visitors to the Meteora all year round. With the town's economy based on tourism, there's a good range of hotels and hostels.
In the town itself, a popular visit is to the Center of Contemporary Art, which exhibits artworks from the private collection of Greek art collector Leonidas Beltsios.
Kalambaka also has a long tradition in the production of handmade wood carvings, which you can learn more about at the town's traditional wood-carving school. It's also worth visiting the Cathedral of the Dormition of the Virgin.
