Meteora Photos

Meteora monasteries Greece - medieval life on sky-high rocks.

The very first monastery was built around 1350 (Grande Meteora). It is worth clarifying that first hermits appeared here in the 9th century. In its best of times, there were up to 3,000 people living in these bizarre rocks, and pilgrims came here from all over the world to communicate with living saints. They stopped to overnight at an inn exactly where the monastery of St. Stefan is now. Ascetics were striving for spiritual wealth and reached the truth through events and phenomena that were invisible to ordinary mortal people.

History of Meteora

Meteors begin their existence about 50 million years ago, when Greece was just beginning to emerge from the depths of the sea. It so happened that the largest valley in Greece - Thessaly, became a closed reservoir at the bottom of which sand, pebbles, stones, earth and other materials impregnated with calcium settled for many millions.
Where so much calcium did came from and how nature managed to turn all this composition into real cement, you will learn on our tour.

Why these places have remained hidden from the whole world for so many millenniums is legendary. The first hermits and later monks appear here in the earliest Middle Ages.

 

 

With faith and diligence, they built monasteries on top of rounded stone pillars up to 600 meters high. The monasteries protected people well from enemies and robbers, but living at this dizzying height was still not an easy task. After all, every drop of water and every grain of wheat must be grown below and raised to a safe height.

 

 

Even if water in winter time could be collected with rain, food had to be grown in the valleys and surrounded hills.

According to some reports, up to 5,000 monks lived in these places in 24 monasteries. But the extremely difficult life and the change of eras led to the decline of this monastic republic.

Enigma of Meteora

The excursion to Meteora mysteriously remains an unforgettable and the brightest trip in the mind of any traveler who has visited these places at least once. The high stone pillars of several hundred meters, on top of which, between heaven and earth, the eternal Orthodox monasteries once built, just amaze the imagination of tourists. One of the unsolved mysteries to this day is not only the origin, but also the absence of any mention of the existence of these stone pillars before the 9th century AD. In other words, nobody mentioned about the existence of these strange shape sheer rocks, during ancient times, like they never existed. And we talking about Greece here, the place where history as science was created, country with thousands remarks and reviews from ancient travelers, scientists, geography observers, etc.

Individual tour to Meteora from Larissa

Larissa is the oldest living city on the planet with 8,000 years of history.

Here modernity and Antiquity miraculously harmonize. Antiquity smoothly passes into the Empire of the Romans - Byzantium. The times of the Ottoman Empire are next to the era of the Trojan War. In the center of the city, there is a beautifully preserved antique theater of the III-IV century BC for up to 10,000 spectators. The ancient doctor Hippocrates lived and worked here. The ancient author of the Description of Hellas, Pausanias, places Larissa in the first row of Greek cities, following Homer."
