What to Expect
The Meteora‘s landscape is formed by its unique natural phenomenon of high rocks pushed from the depth of the Earth. This particular location was chosen by the Orthodox Monks by the 14th Century as a place of serenity, spirituality and inspiring cult that would light the path to peace and harmony.
The Orthodox Monks built the Monasteries on top of these rocks, so they could be closer to god and start their spiritual elevation. They built inside the Monasteries everything they needed so they could be isolated from the rest of the world and live the presence of God through their faith.
With this One Day Tour you will admire the architecture of this Greek wonder, with its Byzantine paintings and treasures that are exposed inside the Monasteries. Do not miss the chance to see the lifestyle of the monks yourselves.
