This was the THIRD and last monastery I visited (the other two were Gran Meteoron and Varlaam). There were not as many things to see as the other monasteries (like relics, paintings, books, souvenir shop, etc), but it offered the BEST view of the town....More

This place has a great view of the city and not too many people. Great for pictures. The entrance fee is only €3! Even has clean toilets.

Really worth visiting, I expected crowds and whilst we certainly weren't the only people here, it was very special. The sense of peace, a meditative air about the place and against all odds beautiful gardens and trees drooping under the weight of pomegranates !

For Christians, this place is 3rd on earth - only after Jerusalem and Mt. Athos (in Northern Greece). Breathtaking views.

In order to really understand the meteora and it's monasteries you'd really have to go to at least one monastery. This was the easiest access one and it was quite nice. You get to see how it's designed and built...and really understand the challenges
