  • 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!
