Among the mountains of Pindos and Antichasia rise the rocks of Meteora, the most important monastic city after Mount Athos.
It seems that the first hermits settled at the cavities of the rocks during the 11th-12th century seeking spiritual redemption.
Here, a lot of people continue to come looking for spiritual calm and peace. The impressive landscape creates awe to the visitors,
while thanks to its unique character Meteora is included in the World Heritage List of UNESCO.
Meteora is a truly inspiring and sensational setting of overwhelming rock formations, but one must also be prepared to expect that this trip is much more than merely visiting an exquisite landscape. It is a pilgrimage to a holy place for all Christians around the world. Meteora has become a preservation ark for the 2000-year-old Christian Orthodox creed.
