Meteora - A Unique Place in Greece

Meteora is a unique and spectacular landscape in central Greece. It is one of the most beautiful places in Greece. The area of Meteora on the Greek mainland is a collection of six monasteries that were constructed on limestone rocks many centuries ago. It is one of the largest and most important complexes of Eastern Orthodox monasteries in Greece.

These monasteries are perched on high cliffs and accessible by staircases cut into the rock formations. Each of the six mystical monasteries look beautiful both from up close and from afar. They are still inhabited to this day. Of these, four are inhabited by men, and two by women.

The existence of the monasteries on the top of the natural sandstone rock towers makes Meteora a special place in Greece. It has become one of the most popular tourist destinations in Greece. Many tourists visit the place the whole year to see the unique monasteries, to climb the peaks, and for hiking. It is one of the many places in Greece that you can visit at any time of the year.
