Visited St. Barbara's and St. Stephen's and they were OK. I would have liked to have seen more than just the chapels. If there was more, our guide did not show us. The scenery from up the pinnacles was spectacular, as were the vantage points on the terraces. And the hole in the ground toilet was an exercise in gymnastics, not for the faint of heart:)

Unique place, with old monasteries hanging around on cliffs and big rocks. Worth seeing it from inside-out, breathtaking unforgettable views

Meteora is one of the top tourist attractions in Greece. They are 30 Km away from Trikala, near the village of Kastraki. These geological formations are really unique! And it's not only the nature's wonder that worth the visit. On these rocks there are 6 monasteries, that can be easily visited on foot or by car. The greatest of all is Great Meteoro, so if you don't have the time to visit them all, just visit Great Meteoro. Meteora are simply wonderful!!!!!

How could anyone describe this astonishing geological phenomenon, the breathtaking landscape, the inspiration and spirituality felt, the awe for man’s achievements in an effort to express his religious drive, when these are only some of the many things a traveler experiences when visiting this phenomenal land!

The monastaries are a must but don't forget to enjoy nature while you are there. The town itself is average but Meteora's natural beauty is the real reason to go. Hike, picnic, and relax. A very spiritual place to get in touch with yourself.
