The Holy church of "Koimesis", situated North-East of the municipality of Kalambaka, was the old cathedral of the Bishopric Stagoi.
The church is a spacious basilica with nave which rises higher than the two aisles. It was built probably in the 10th or 11th century, on the remains of an early - christian basilica. Part of the floor mosaic is saved, while material from the early byzantine ambo has been used to firm the new one of marble, in the centre of the church. From the old church comes the ciborium of marble and the synthronon. The wall paintings of the church date from 12th to 17th century.
