Closer to heaven

High on these rocks 21 monasteries were built in the past.. Now there are 6 of them still inhabited. We were so fortunate to be able to visit one of them.

The rocks were formed in the mists of 60,000,000 years ago.
The thousand and more sheer and soaring rocks with their mysterious harmony create in the visitor a feeling of ecstacy and awe. The monks of Meteora have been the guardians of these mysterious rocks for hundreds of years.
