These Ancient Monasteries In Greece Are Beautiful, But Are Tough To Visit.

By  | 

The Meteora is an unbelievable formation of sandstone columns in Greece that are home to several monasteries. A large part of what makes these monasteries so unique is that they were carved out of the columns themselves. It”s almost as if building monasteries in addition to a 370 metres high stone formation wasn”t hard enough, therefore the monks decided to give themselves even more of a challenge. If this was the target, assignment carried through.

In all seriousness however, these monasteries are certainly amazing. It”s no wonder they”ve been included on the UNESCO World Heritage List.

It”s an excellent thing those monks were constantly praying to the heavens, since I can”t imagine looking down would have served them well. If you need to get a closer look at these stone buildings that are amazing, why not say at the resort? Can”t get any closer than that.
