Meteora is 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!
Accommodation is available in the town of Kalambaka and the village of Kastraki which are built at the feet of Meteora.
