  • This monastery is very nice. It is smaller than the large Meteor. The price is 6€ / person. The girls have to cover the legs not can go in shorts. The photos are truly spectacular.

  • The images speak for themselves ... There you can add anything, except after they visited, the meteors will remain in your permanent memory!

  • The iconography is stunning. Well worth the trek up the stairs.
  • Really beautiful views. If you're Catholic you will find this place mutch more interesting.
  • If you are a tourist or Christian-Ortodox this is a nice place to visit. The place and the view is stunning.
  • They use religion for economic benefit only. They do not let athletes climb up to do what they love. They have set a ticket for 3euro . DO NOT PAY
  • Nice historical place
