  • The monasterys in the area are impressive but quiet simmilar. Still we enjoyed the tour a lot. Ladies must wear skirts supplied on entrance. Some monesteries charge 3 eu. Some have lots of stairs! We ...  more »
  • On this Monastery you get to walk down hill. This is now a convent and you aren't able to take any pictures inside the buildings. Too bad because there is a lot of wonderful things to see in here.  more »
  • It is a monastery of the Varlaam and the Rusaru visible beneath it. The abbey is a large monastery with a dome and a cross-shaped overhang, but Lusane is a monastery that floats in the air. It is built on a rock in the side of the Agiatriada monastery, which was used by 007, and it is used for posters and other unusual landscapes.

  • Meteora is a collection of Christian-Orthodox monasteries nestled among stunning cliffs right in the heart of Greece. Dating back to the 1300s, the monasteries were purposely built to encourage isolation, fostering a spiritual connection. The Holy Trinity Monastery is the most difficult to reach, with about 140 steps to climb nearly straight up to the top. And they're still functioning with active monks acting as a form of living history.
  • Wow ^ The Best of Kalambaka Greece 🇬🇷
  • Of the 6 remaining monasteries, this is probably the smallest. Views can be seen from the outside without paying 3 euro for entry.
  • Amazing place. No words. No. 1 in all of Greece
  • This is one of the smallest monastries with few areas accessible to public, and surprisingly no photos are allowed inside. Entrance fee is 3 euro per person (same as the other ones) which is steep compare to what can be seen here. Better to just look from outside.
