Meteora is considered one of the most beautiful areas of mainland Greece and its hanging monasteries are one of the country's most unique attractions.
The monasteries are perched on top of towers of sandstone, which for centuries provided totally inaccessible retreats for the monks.
They are built on top of rock towers and they provide fantastic views over the plain.
You will be delighted in the play of light on the rocks and their changing moods.
On sunny mornings the red roof tiles of the monasteries glisten in sharp contrast to the weather-stained grayness of the rocks while the late afternoon sun bathes the landscape with a golden glow.
At night time, the rocks are dramatically illuminated by spotlights while autumnal mists shroud them in an ethereal mysteriousness that must have appealed to the hermits and monks who sought refuge.
