More Tips on Meteora from Travelers
- The Meteora (Greek: Μετέωρα, pronounced [meˈteora]) is a rock formation in central Greece hosting one of the largest and most precipitously built complexes of Eastern Orthodox monasteries, second in importance only to Mount Athos. The six (of an original twenty four) monasteries are built on immense natural pillars and hill-like rounded boulders that dominate the local area. It is located near the town of Kalambaka at the northwestern edge of the Plain of Thessaly near the Pineios river and Pindus Mountains. The name means “lofty”, “elevated”, and is etymologically related to meteor.
- That’s Meteora in Greece. Six monasteries build on huge natural pillars. It’s a hidden gem in Greece as most travelers won’t find their way to this place which is around 3 hours away from Thessaloniki. We stayed there for a night during our road trip from Thessaloniki to Athens. This place was truly breathtaking.
