Monastery of Agia Triada

On top of one of the steepest, most magnificent rocks of Meterora, with an enchanting view to the surrounding area, over Kalabaka and near the Monastery of Agios Stefanos, is situated the Monastery of Agia Triada.

As mentioned in a manuscript of 1362, which is kept at the archive of the Monastery of the Great Meteoron, on this rock it seems there was a monastery at least from the 14th century. The catholicon, which still survives today, was built in 1475-1476, according to an inscription that survives on its wall. It is a cross-in-square church with a dome supported on two columns. On the eastern side stands out the three-sided arch, which is built according to cloisonné masonry, and has the characteristic ceramic decoration. On the west there is a spacious vaulted narthex (liti) which, according to an inscription, is a later addition, in 1689. At its interior the church is decorated with icons of 1741, the work of the painter brothers Antonios and Nikolaos. The wall paintings in the narthex date from 1692, which the screen of the church is modern, and has replaced the older one, which was stolen. In 1684, a small sacristy was added.

You climb to the monastery complex through a ladder. On the top of the rock still survive, renovated, the altar, the cells and other auxiliary areas. The cavernous chapel of Timios Prodromos, where an inscription indicates that its icons were made in 1682, under the expenses of the priest-monks Damaskinos, Ionas and Parthenios.

It is a men’s monastery and celebrates on Holy Spirit Monday.
