Meteora Greece


The Metéora (Greek: Μετέωρα—"suspended rocks", "suspended in the air" or "in the heavens above") 
is one of the largest and most important complex of monasteries in Greece, second only to 
Mount Athos.


The monasteries are built on natural sandstone rock pinnacles, at the northwestern edge of the Plain of Thessaly near the Pinios river and Pindus Mountains, in central Greece. The Metéora is home now to six monasteries and is included on the UNESCO World Heritage List.
