Meteora Monasteries

Meteora is the second largest monastic and pilgrimage area in Greece after Mount Athos. The first monks took refuge on these cliff tops fleeing an invading Turkish army around the 11th century. Several monasteries were built in the centuries that followed and all the building materials had to be winched up in baskets. Until 1920 this was the sole means for getting supplies up to the monasteries. In 1988 Metéora was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site. You will encounter a breathtaking site of impressive monasteries “balanced” on massive detached stone pinnacles, 400 metres above the ground. Meteora is one of Christianity’s holiest places as well as a landscape of outstanding natural beauty.

Statue of Leonidas

The monument was built to commemorate the battle at Thermopylae, and is located at the centre of the pass, where the final phase of the battle took place, as is attested by the accumulation at the foot of the hill of iron and bronze spearheads dated to the 5th century B.C.
