Meteora are a complex of huge dark coloured sandstone rocks which rise above Kalambaka, near the first hills of Pindos and Chasia mountain ranges.

The convents and monasteries of Meteora, which are built on the top of the huge rocks, are the second most significant monastic complex in Hellas in modern times, following Mount Athos.

From a total of 30 that used to be around, today only 6 are manned and in operation, and are included in the list of monuments of world’s heritage of UNESCO since 1988.
