Μετεωρα

Description

Μετέωρα [Meteora]

Meteora is an area of stunning rock formations near the city of Kalambaka in central Greece. These rock formations consist of a series of tooth-like natural sand stone rock pillars surrounded by lush vegetation. On top of six of these pillars, Greek orthodox monks live in beautiful monasteries overlooking the valley. These can be visited and one of them even served as a movie setting for James Bond. ‘Μετέωρα’ is listed as a UNESCO world heritage site and means ‘suspended in the air’ – and thats exactly what it feels like.
