Monastery in Meteora, Greece

A monastery on top of one of Meteora's pillar, Greece - Jack and Jill Collection

Quite easily the highlight of our visit to Greece, Meteora was spellbinding. The beautiful rock pillars alone, rising above the surrounding fields were breathtaking. But the monasteries built on top of them multiplied the charm of the landscape, oh, about 1000x easy.

  1. Did you guys climb up these rocks too? It's amazing beauty.
    It's still hard for me to imagine that you guys are mount climbers, but you, Jill, can't swim -_-.

  2. Wow, that's a beautiful photo. Why are monasteries always teetering on the edge of rocks? We trekked to our local (abandoned) monastery on Thursday and I always have to consult my wits before heading towards it. Sheer drops galore!

  3. Oh my damn… this is an awesome photo. I have never seen or even heard of this place. Where is this near by? I would love to visit here while I am in Greece!

  4. Meteora was my favorite place on the Greek Mainland as well. I wish I had stayed more than just one day. I would have liked to see the last 2 monasteries. Only got 4 of the 6.

    @Connie – Wow what a ride. Where did you come from that you could take a train? My adventure was trying to get out of town and getting stuck in the middle of nowhere.

  5. Awesome! You are one of the very few people I know to have heard, much less, gone to Meteora! I had quite the adventure getting there involving an over-booked overnight train, getting seated in the middle of the Greek army, falling asleep and missing my connecting stop! I ended up getting off at the next stop, waiting 4 hours in the train station before I finally made it to Meteora. And it was so worth it!
