The wonderful marriage of nature and culture, Meteora, has become mass tourism. If you want to avoid the crowds, choose Agia Triada, which is the hardest to reach. But very doable, unless you select the James Bond slope.

Wonderful place , well worth the climb. Small but worthwhile. Setting of James Bond scene makes it extra special.

Agia Triada is probably the least visited of the monasteries in Meteora. It is the Monastery featured, I believe as St. Cyril's, in the Bond film For Your Eyes Only. As of this post, they are doing a significant amount of renovation on the site...More

Easy to get by car. All the complex is very impressive and with great views around the stones. It is possible to go with child around 7-9.

Featured in the James Bond movie from 1981, this is the least visited monastery in the area. Therefore very much worth visiting since it’s not swamped with tourists.

Built over 600 years ago by Byzantine monks, this remote monastery is built into and on top of an almost inaccessible limestone rock 'tower' that rises almost 900 feet (275 meters) above the surrounding landscape. Monks living here keep the rich traditions of the community...More

Agia Triada is the most dramatically placed of all the monasteries. It sits on top of a 400m tall slender sandstone pillar and is reached by climbing 140 steep rock-hewn steps. The monastery was also featured in the 1981 James Bond film For Your Eyes...More
