The expression ‘head in the clouds’ literally applies in Meteora, a complex of monasteries, situated in the Plain of Thessaly, near Kalambaka, one of the most famous monastic centers of Eastern Orthodox monasteries in Greece, after Mount Athos. Perched on high cliffs and built on natural sandstone rock pillars, the monasteries are located in a magnificent, breathtaking landscape. The wild, high cliffs make Meteora one of the most beautiful places on earth, and a unique natural phenomenon. It’s so beautiful that you feel intimidated, like a dwarf in the Land of Giants. For its Christian, architectural, historical and geographic significance, Meteora is recognized and protected by UNESCO.
