Meteora is a spectacular complex of hilltop Eastern Orthodox monasteries located in Central Greece. Perched on lofty sandstone pinnacles rising above the Thessalian plain, these centuries-old buildings with hidden hermetic caves and manicured garden terraces, are wonders of architecture and engineering. Home to Byzantine artifacts, prized manuscripts, well-preserved frescoes, and old pulley systems, the six sanctuaries afford panoramic vistas of the lush Peneas valley and the Pindos Mountains beyond. In addition to being a pilgrimage site for Orthodox Christians, Meteora attracts outdoorsy travelers who want to soak in the serenity of the natural surroundings. Enjoy hiking excursions on steep ancient footpaths, rock climbing on the unique geological formations, and camping adventures in scenic landscapes around. Keep an eye out for the endangered Egyptian vultures that are a symbol of Meteora! The atmospheric Kastraki village below is popular for traditional Greek cuisine, while the neighboring Kalambaka town is highlighted by the Natural History Museum of Meteora and Mushroom Museum.
