General Information about Meteora

Meteora is a region in central Greece, located in a valley in the Thessaly region, close to the city of Kalambaka. It is characterized by its amazing eroded rock formations, which seem to float in the clouds.

On the tops of these rocks, defying gravity, imposing monasteries are erected, which were built there because the monks believed that they would be closer to God in this way.

In 1988, Meteora was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO due not only to its idyllic landscape but also to the history behind this wonder that brings together the best of nature and the work of man, since, during the Turkish occupation, these monasteries functioned as spaces dedicated to the preservation of Greek culture and, in the second world war, as refuges**.**

Meteora: the Sky City

The richness of Meteora lies in the perfect communion between nature and human intervention. Its rock masses, which seem to hang from the sky, are the perfect surface for monasteries, resulting from the settlement of monks that began in the 11th century.

Due to their strategic location, these monasteries fulfilled different functions throughout history, including preserving Hellenic culture between the 15th and 19th centuries, during the Turkish invasion, as they became important artistic and academic centers.

How Is the Culture in Meteora

Traditional Food of Meteora

If you are interested in the idea of ​​trying delicacies worthy of a Greek feast, then you have to visit Meteora and eat like the gods. The main gastronomic offer is found in the nearby cities of Kalambaka and Katraki. There you will find delicious dishes, at a good price and abundant enough to recover energy after touring the monasteries.

A typical dish that you can try is moussaka, a traditional Greek recipe consisting of layers of sliced ​​aubergine, minced lamb and tomato, covered in bechamel sauce. You can also find this recipe made with mushrooms, which, by the way, are a local product from the area. And don't leave without eating the typical Greek yogurt with honey and plums, you won't regret it.

Meteora: Traces of History

Meteora's idyllic landscape is the product of a saltwater lagoon that used to occupy the site, which exposed this surreal spectacle in the Tempe Valley 60 million of years ago.

The first settlements of the monks were in the natural caves of Meteora, and later they built their temples on top of the rock formations.

Today, you can visit some of these monasteries and marvel at their architecture and works of art. Of others, only their ruins remain after being bombed by the Nazi party.

The Meteora Monasteries

The monasteries are the jewel of Meteora, because if their architecture and the incredible natural scenery on which they stand take your breath away, discovering them from the inside is not far behind.

Inside, the walls are covered by imposing paintings with religious motifs, which only find pause in the exquisite stained glass windows through which natural light enters.

The monks who live in Meteora lead their lives at a very different pace from today's times, fully dedicated to cultivating their spirituality, making the site a monument to peace and tranquility.

Visit the Cloisters

If you are going to visit the monasteries of Meteora, you must take into account some considerations when choosing your clothing, as they are religious temples with a specific dress code.

In order to enter the cloisters, women must use long skirts and t-shirts or shirts with sleeves that do not expose the shoulders. If you like to wear pants, you can, but you must cover them with a pashmina before entering. Men, on the other hand, must wear a shirt or t-shirt with long sleeves and pants that cover their knees.
