Meteora is a UNESCO World Heritage site, and justifiably so. It is a spiritual place that combines striking natural beauty with the added incentive of exploring some historic monasteries that are built on the summits of these peculiar rock formations. Imposing, impressive, immense, immaculate and monumental, these majestic mountain peaks will create a staggering sense of awe among visitors.
Standing 400 meters tall, these epic mountain boulders resemble vertical cliffs, so dramatic in appearance but also in history, that a visit to discover them is almost imperative. Built by hermit monks who used to live in the caves of the Meteora mountains until then, they believed the hardship endured to build the monasteries and reside in them with no water or electricity provisions (until recently) was a way of getting closer to the divine, through deeper levels of spiritual awakening.
Located in the North of Greece near the town of Kalambaka, the Meteora mountains are waiting for you to unlock the key to their riveting essence; their inspiring past, and their astonishing present.
