Directions to Hotel Kosta Famissi
Hotel Kosta Famissi is located in Kalampaka in the shadow of the Meteora's rocks and the holy monasteries. The area is 400 kilometers far from Athens and 250 kilometers far from Thessaloniki. This area is in the northwest part of Thessaly, in central Greece, between the Hasia Mountains that lie in the Northeast and the Pindos Mountains that lie in the West, where the plain of Thessaly ends, gigantic rocks rise and create a universally unique spectacle. The phenomenon of the rock's birth is not mentioned in Greek mythology, or by any Greek or foreign historian. In these rocks plenty of brave hermits also found refuge, seeking spiritual calmness and peace of mind, while aiming at Christian perfection through their prayers. In the beginning those hermits prayed in isolation in small chapels, the so-called 'prosefhadia' (=places for praying), not only for their own salvation but for the salvation of all people. They led an austere life and worked arduously.
