Surrounding Area - Kalampaka, Meteora


Meteora

A unique natural and cultural phenomenon worldwide protected by UNESCO. Only second to Mount Athos, Meteora is the biggest monastic establishment in Greece.

The huge imposing and awe-inspiring rocks were first inhabited by hermits who established the first monastic community. During the 14th century Saint Athanasios known as the Meteoritis organised the first monastic community on the Great Meteoro. Twenty four monasteries, lots of cells, hermitages and places of asceticism have flourished abundantly around the rest of the area for more than 600 years.

Today only a fraction of the monasteries has been preserved and still in use,  Great Meteoro, Varlaam, Holy Trinity, Saint Stefanos, Roussanou and Saint Nikolaos Anapafsas. Every day thousands of visitors from every corner of the world are given the change to meditate, pray, get to know monastic life and at the same time admire the awe-inspiring scenery, get into the spirit of the artistic, architecture and Byzantine Art and study the heirloom of our culture and heritage.
