Diava Kalambakas

Μέσα σε ένα όμορφο και καταπράσινο περιβάλλον και στους πρόποδες του Κόζιακα σε υψόμ. 280μ βρίσκεται ( 1000 περίπου κάτοικοι) η Διάβα. Ανήκει στο Δήμο Καλαμπάκας και απέχει 3 χλμ. από αυτή. Ανατολικά του χωριού ρέει ο Πηνειός ποταμός, φυσικό όριο με την πόλη της Καλαμπάκας . Στο Δ.Δ. της Διάβας ανήκει και ο παραθεριστικός οικισμός της Κορομηλιάς ( υψόμ. 1150μ). Το παλαιό όνομα του χωριού ήταν Πρεβέντα ( = πέρασμα στη βλάχικη διάλεκτο απο το λατινικό ρήμα praevenio= διέρχομαι. Ενδιαφέρον παρουσιάζουν οι μεταβυζαντινές εκκλησίες της Αγίας Παρασκευής, του Αγίου Δημητρίου και του Αγίου Αθανασίου.

Ο Πηνειός χωρίζει τα Μετέωρα από τη Διάβα. Από τη μια μεριά το μεγαλείο αλλά και η ανυπέρβλητη ομορφιά των Βράχων με την παγκόσμια ακτινοβολία και από την άλλη ένα τοπίο καταπράσινο με τη Διάβα να κρέμεται κυριολεκτικά από  την αγκαλιά του Κόζιακα.

The cave Theopetra located on the northeast side of the limestone rock, which rises in the community Theopetra, about 4km outside Kalambaka and has an arched entrance, measuring 17 x 3 m or so. The interior consists of a main hall 500 sq.m. some with small niches in the region. The formation of limestone rock Theopetra placed in the upper Cretaceous period (137 million to 65 million years from now). The creation of the cave is therefore subsequent to the above couple. The cave was inhabited during the Middle Paleolithic Period (beginning approximately 130,000 years ago).

This cave is first excavated in Thessaly and the only so far in Greece with continuous anthropogenic layers starting from the Middle Stone Age and up to the end of the Neolithic (3000 BC).
