Have you ever heard about Meteora? That place, close to Kalambaka town, is one of the largest and most important complexes of Eastern Orthodox monasteries in Greece. There are six monasteries which are built on natural sandstone rock pillars, at the northwestern edge of the Plain of Thessaly near the Pineios river and Pindus Mountains, in central Greece. Meteora in Greek language means “monasteries suspended in the air”.
