You drive just outside the village of Kastraki, and find one of the most spectacular natural spikes of mountains, with a special surprise. The monasteries there are built into the cliffs, are accessible mainly by rope bridges, and are incredible testimonies to their builders. Very few monks still inhabit these monasteries and the fees that they charge for the visit make them some of the wealthiest clergy in the world. The price is a bit high but so is the view! Not to be missed if you do a land tour of Greece!

Meteora is just amazing. No need to be very religious, the monasteries on the top of the rocks makes one of the most awesome landscapes I ever seen. I can't understand why this place is so unknown and not extremely touristic, but actually I am happy for that. If you visit some of the 6 monasteries, they are interesting too.
One of the best experiences in Greece.

This is one of the places you must visit. An outstanding location with amazing views.The monastereis are a sight to be seen perched on the rock formations.

This area is beautiful for not only the scenery but also for the historic monetary's, convents, and hermitage caves. Suggest you stay in Kastraki and book a tour with Meteora Travel. This area should be on everyone's bucket list.

Simply THE most awe inspiring place I've ever seen. It took decades just to haul the building materials to the top of the rock pinnacles before building could begin then many more years to construct the monasteries.
