A few words ..Meteora is a huge cluster of dark rocks of sandstone that rise out of Kalambaka, near the first hills of Pindos and Chassia. The monasteries of Meteora, which is built on top of some rocks, constitute, after Mount Athos, the largest and constant presence since the establishment of the first ascetics today monasteries in Greece. From the historical evidence suggests that the monasteries of Meteora were thirty in total. From these thirty convents six are in operation today and receive many pilgrims. But there are many smaller monasteries abandoned. Most of them were founded in the 14th century. Meteora was named by St. Athanasios Meteorites founder of the first monastery, the Monastery of the Great Meteoro. Since then over the Sacred Rock came and settled Monks and Nuns, who toil day and night to work, fasting, vigil, not only for their own salvation and for the salvation of all people with long prayers and supplications. The six visited monasteries of Meteora, is now restored and preserved for the most part in the mural decoration. In 1989 Unesco inscribed Meteora on the list of World Heritage Monuments as a particularly important cultural and natural resource.
