This is an interesting place, especially given its location up on top of a cliff. This monastery is the most easily accessible of the cliff monasteries of Meteora, and has a lovely little church. Sadly most everything was destroyed during the war, so the church...More

This is the only monastry at Meteora that you can approach without having to climb steps. You can park just outside, so only for that you can give it a try. Of course its not the same like Varlaam or Megalo Monastiri, but it has...More

Wall to wall people. The nuns squeeze as many people into this monastery as possible. No heavenly feeling here. Just people, people, people. Oh, and don't forget to cover up, if you don't the nuns will be sure that you do, because it is so...More

This monastery has the potential to be a lot more but there doesn't seem to be enough people to run it, so apart from the gardens and the church, nothing is really worth the climb. Unfortunately, the renovation has also taken away much of this...More

The most accessible monastery from all Meteor. It can even pass a disabled person. A wonderful place like all Meteor monasteries. In the church lies Haralampiy. Friendly nuns. A small shop at the entrance. Admission is 3 euros from an adult.

I love off the beaten track, inaccessible, rarely seen and old things. So when we arrived and saw 15 buses parked along the road I was very weary. It is very popular as it is the easiest of all the monasteries to access... but I...More

An impressive must see. Be prepared to take the approximately 200 steps to the top, but the steps are much better than the old system of raising you by means of a rope. The stairs were cut in the rock when the monks began to...More

The biggest draw for this Meteora monastery is that it is the most easily accessible: no stairs to climb! It is also the only nunnery of the famous Meteora monasteries, so it is worth a visit for that reason also. It offers stunning views of...More
