  • TheRossanou monestary was the one that I liked the most. It is smaller and very fine. The shop with souvenirs is very neat and does not have the ugly commercial things.  more »

  • It is really very little to see here. Just the church and small terrace with beautiful flowers. If you need to choose a few of the monasteries which you would like to visit - I would not recommend this one. There is also a view point above this monastery (with the nice forest path leading to it) with probably one of the best views of the whole Meteora complex.
  • My favourite of the monasteries we've been to in the area. Small and less to see, but more picturesque. It is beautifully kept with lots of gorgeous flowers, and the nuns make their own honey and herbal mixes to sell. I also found the souvenirs here to be less mass-produced than the other monasteries. Beautiful views and less crowded than the more popular monasteries.
  • The Best Hospitality! Magnificent Views! Beautiful Surroundings! Great Experience! Worth paying a visit!
  • One of the smallest out of the six existing functioning monasteries, but the most picturesque out of all. Simple construction but many stories behind the extensive work behind building them.
  • It is nice but what you are allowed to visit is really limited. If you do not have a lot of time, better to skip this one and focus on the other monasteries.
