Meteora

(maps & photos)

How to get there: by public bus (min. 6hrs), by train (min. 4hrs) or by car (min. 5hrs)
Kalambaka is built at the feet of Meteora, a chain of awesome rocks, on top of which 24 monasteries, the oldest one dating from 1150A.D, have been built. Only 6 of the monasteries are still inhabited, and each one is a remarkable monument of Byzantine architecture, housing rare manuscripts and items used in the Orthodox services. A truly unique landscape, which should be visited at least once in a lifetime!
