We will visit all of the monasteries from outside viewpoints. Meteora has many peaks and valleys to explore and capture the monasteries from. Our photography tours provide the best spots to photograph the stunning landscape combined with the architecture of the monasteries. Some of these monasteries were built strategically as to appear as extensions of the huge rocks as the walls and the floors touch the edges of them!
During our tours, we will visit at least one of the monasteries and cave-dwellings from the inside. Hermits migrated to Meteora as early as the eleventh century. They first created small places to pray next to or inside the caves. Three of the old monasteries and hermitages have been restored to their original state. Our tours make it a point to not only educate you on the monastic life but also take you to one or more of these monasteries.
The foundation of the monastery of the Great Meteoron is the starting point of the organized monastic life in Meteora. This monastery is the oldest, largest and most formal of the existing Meteora Monasteries. It is built on a giant rock and is known as the monastery that is suspended in the air. The Meteoron was founded shortly before the middle of the 14th century by Saint Athanasios the Meteora who was also its first founder and the first to organize a systematic monastic community.
There are also 5 other monasteries: Varlaam, St. Stephen, St. Nikolaos of Anapafsas, Rousano and the Holy Trinity. Make sure you look at the visiting hours as they vary by time and day.
It may not be the only way to see this UNESCO World Heritage, but definitely the only way to explore the beauty of the Meteora landscape.
