Meteora: This celebrated view of Meteora has become one of the most photographed spots in Greece.
The Great Meteoron Monastery: The region's largest and oldest monastery is the Great Meteoron. Meteora means "suspended in the air" and this place of worship gave its name to the entire region.
Abseiling the Great Saint: The sandstone peaks have become a hot destination for rock climbers and hikers. A popular excursion is the Via Ferrata up Meteora's highest mountain, the Great Saint.
Fancy a walk on this cliff?: Years ago the only access to the monasteries was by a rope and pulley system, or by free-climbing the cliffs. In the 1920s stairs were constructed, allowing safer travel for monks and visitors.
Kastraki village: While the town of Kalambaka receives the majority of tourists, neighboring Kastraki village is quieter and equally picturesque.
Climb the Spindle: Meteora is a rock climber's paradise, and this striking monolith known as "The Spindle" is one of the most popular climbing challenges.
Theopetra Cave: Theopetra Cave has evidence of continuous human inhabitation going back 130,000 years. A 23,000-year-old wall, thought to be one of the world's oldest man-made structures, stands at the mouth of the cave.
Working monasteries: The six other monasteries all have intricate religious murals in their halls and chapels. Despite the boom in tourism they are still fully functioning for the monks and nuns who live there.
