A veritable forest of fantastically shaped and shadowy rocks stands out over the Peneo Valley and the city of Kalambaka. It is a unique geological phenomenon that gives rise to a landscape without equal, the tops of these gigantic rocks are crowned by famous coenobitical monasteries. Its origin is in the first anchorites of the 11th century, who settled in their caves in search of solitude. In the S. XIV with the Serb invasion in Thessaly, many of these hermitages were transformed into monasteries and it was then when Saint Athanasius, coming from Mount Athos, founded the Great Meteora, and other monks followed him despite the difficulties in transporting the materials to the construction of the different monastic centres. The XV and XVI centuries were the period of greatest splendour and they became up to 24 monasteries. Today there are only 5 establishments occupied by men and women religious, you will have the opportunity to meet two of these unique monasteries in the world with our guide.
