Closer to Heaven
Click to enlarge and see more details!
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, true Sky Watchers, have been the guardians of these mysterious rocks for hundreds of years.They built their monastries so high to be closer to heaven.
Sky Watch is hosted by Klaus, Sandy, Ivar, Wren, Fishing Guy & Louise
