Located in Central Greece around 4 hours north of Athens is one of the most amazing sites in Europe. The Monasteries of Meteora tower over the fertile plains of Thessaly and the town of Kalambaka built incredibly on stunning rock formations projecting up out of the ground.
There is nothing quite like it anywhere else!
Often described as stunning works of architecture set in a landscape that is as unique as it is breath-taking, the six monasteries of Meteora are visited every year by many tourists yet still seem uncrowded and completely accessible.
They also represent an important part of Greek history and the link between the early formation of Christian doctrine and the Turkish occupation of Greece during the 11th century AD.
