METEORA

The Meteora is a complex of monasteries on the north west plain of Thessaly between the two mountain ranges of Pindos and Antichassia. It is here on these untrodden peaks that a determined and daring hermit supposedly discovered the ladder to heaven. Legend and tradition say that as early as the 11th century ad the first hermits inhabited the crags on the top of the rocks and by the early 12th century ad the first rudimentary monastic state was in existence. A wonderous and spectacular landscape well worth the journey to reach it.
