Suspended in the air (which is what meteora
means in Greek), the monasteries of Meteora represent a unique architectural achievement. Here, six Greek Orthodox monasteries balance on spectacular natural rock pillars on the edge of the Pindus Mountains in Greece. Hermits and ascetics have settled on the sandstone peaks of the Meteora to seek solitude since as early as the 10th century.
